Véronique Barbe

Editor

Montreal based editor Veronique Barbe works on Canadian and American productions (film, television, advertising, music video). Her recent credits include co-editor on HBO’s Emmy winning and nominated series Big Little Lies (2016) and Sharp Objects (2017-18), both directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and nominated for best editing at the Emmy Awards, Golden Globes, American Cinema Editor awards, and Canadian Cinema Editor Awards. She also joined the editing team on Big Little Lies 2 (2019).

In the advertising world, Veronique has edited over a hundred projects.  In cinema, she has collaborated on many short films such as Nous Avions directed by Stéphane Moukarzel, Ailleurs Exactement directed by Kristina Wagenbauer, and PAS directed by frédérique Cournoyer-Lessard.  More recently, she co-edited Aisling Chin Yee’s feature film The Rest of Us (2019), starring Heather Graham, Sophie Nélisse and Jodi Balfour, which premiered at TIFF 2019.

Veronique believes in closely collaborating with directors to find the best way to relate their story and the internal worlds of their characters to audiences. She is driven by the conviction that stories have the power to influence our perception of the world and of others, through the process of identification and empathy.
