DIRECTOR and PRODUCER Lindsey Dryden is an award-winning British filmmaker.

A Goldsmiths graduate who began her career in TV documentary (BBC, Channel 4, History Channel, Current TV), she specialises in telling stories with artistic flair and emotional insight. DocGeeks say that Dryden makes "formidable and innovative uses of the documentary format to provide a unique insight into the human condition," – and that's how she aims to continue. 

DRYDEN's work has shown at numerous festivals worldwide, including SXSW, Sundance, True/False, HotDocs, Sheffield Doc/Fest and the Film Society Of Lincoln Center’s Art Of The Real, and screened in Picturehouse Cinemas.

She directed her first feature documentary Lost And Sound in 2012: it follows three musicians who have lost their hearing as they try to rediscover music through the prism of their deafness, and premiered at SXSW, with nominations for Best Emerging UK Filmmaker (Open City Docs) and Best Female-Directed Film (Sheffield Doc/Fest). Lindsey has been Filmmaker-In-Residence at Jacob Burns Film Center in NY, and is a Sundance Fellow. She was nominated Best Producer at Underwire Festival for her work with Michael Powell Award winner Joanna Coates on short documentary Little Ones, and is a member of the Queer Producers Collective. She is currently directing a feature documentary about an iconic gender outlaw and jazz musician, producing feature documentary Unrest (Sundance, Chicken & Egg, Good Pitch, Tribeca), lecturing at the University of Gloucestershire and making short films about art and artists with the Tate in London.
