IN MEMORIAM: Doug Ibold, Emmy-Nominated Editor, 1940-2023

JANUARY 23, 1940 – NOVEMBER 8, 2023

It is with an extremely heavy heart we announce the passing of our treasured friend and former ACE board member, Doug Ibold, ACE. He lost his very long and hard-fought battle with cancer on Wednesday, November 8th, surrounded by his closest friends. 

Doug served on the ACE Board for the better part of two decades and was an Emmy and Eddie Award nominated film editor, receiving the Career Achievement Award in 2012. 

An excerpt from his Tribute Book article written by Liza Cardinale, ACE says it best: “A restless spirit and boundless curiosity propelled him throughout his successful career, and made his list of accomplishments more varied than usually found on the resumes of primetime television editors. From jazz bass player to commercial director to rock ‘n’ roll cinematographer, and eventually to editor, Ibold always had his finger on the pulse of his time and managed to stay engaged and relevant as years went by.“

Doug will be profoundly missed by everyone who knew him.

Donations can be made in his honor to the MotionPicture & Television Fund.
