Oscar Rosander (25 July 1901 – 7 May 1971) was a Swedish film editor with more than 100 feature film credits.[1] He was born in Eksjö, Sweden in 1901. He studied modern languages at Uppsala University and later worked with film dubbing and editing for the Swedish film studio Svensk Filmindustri.

Rosander had an extended, notable collaboration on twelve films with the director Ingmar Bergman, including Bergman's debut film Crisis (1946) as well as Smiles of a Summer Night (1955), Wild Strawberries (1957), The Magician (1958), and The Virgin Spring (1960). In his autobiography, Bergman credits Rosander with teaching him the possibilities of editing and of "editing behind the camera".[2]

He died at Las Palmas, Canary Islands, in 1971.
