She graduated in 2008 from the Dutch Film and Television Academy and winning both the Wildcard and the Prince Bernard Culture Fund Documentary award with her graduation film

 The Secret of Boccherinia film about the love of her father, acclaimed cellist Anner Bylsma, for the music of the composer Luigi Boccherini. That film, as well as her following, were shown at film and music festivals around the world and aired on the NTR. Her next film Soloist was received very well, stating in the jury rapport of the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) ;  


'So sensitive is Bijlsma’s evocation of the two strands to Rosanne’s life, that there are moments that one wonders how such intimacy could possibly be captured on film. Soloist goes far beyong a simple portrait of a musican, in it’s sensitivity and intimacy, it is unique.'   


She went on winning an Honorable Mention at the DOXA filmfestival in Vanouver for her film Extase, stating:


“ This film captures the transcendent power of music through the journey of an impassioned conductor as he instills in the viewer a belief of the necessity of art in all our lives." 



Her photography work has been published in magazines such as Avantgarde, Groene Amsterdammer, Akkoord Magazine and CD booklets of several artists including D’Angelo and the Vanguard's Black Messiah (2014)
