Mike Rollo’s photochemical practice explores alternative approaches to non-fiction cinema. His films are place-based, focusing on landscape, rural industry, and communication cultures, with ecological thinking and mindfulness of the shifts, conflicts, and negotiations to themes of obsolescence, age, and decay. He is a founding member of Montreal’s experimental film collective Double Negative and Independent Visions in Regina (SK). His films have been screened at the Ann Arbor Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, International Festival of Documentary and Short Film of Bilbao, International Film Festival Oberhausen, Los Angeles Film Forum, San Francisco Cinematheque, and Rotterdam International Film Festival. Mike teaches film production at the University of Regina.
