Lainey Richardson is an award-winning British director and screenwriter of mixed Ghanaian and Jamaican heritage, hailing from Camden Town.
After graduating from University of the Arts London, Lainey went on to direct 5 short dramas and documentaries which collectively screened at over 15 film festivals worldwide, including the BAFTA qualifying London Short Film Festival and Encounters Film Festival.
In 2020 Lainey joined Caviar’s roster and in a very short amount of time amassed a sensational body of work, for clients such as Facebook, Adidas, Football Beyond Borders and Adobe.
To Lainey, culture is everything. From spotlighting Black cultures and identities, to exploring subcultures and amplifying “othered” voices, Lainey approaches her work with a unique sensibility, sensitivity, and gaze, bringing mainstream appeal to lesser-known narratives told through a contemporary lens.
Her distinctive voice and innate ability to connect with people leading to powerful performances on screen, has led to high profile awards including Best Up & Coming Director at Creative Circle 2021 and being shortlisted for Best New Director at Shots 2021 & Best New Director at Cannes YDA 2021.
Lainey is currently writing her first TV pilot.
