the media lunch club

the media lunch club was established in 1994, by producer Martin Cahill, as a non-profit making, and politically neutral, networking society and has grown to become the film, tv and media industry's premiere café du commerce.

 

Monthly lunches are held in London's West End (and a Brighton away-day lunch during the summer), with an invited guest speaker. Some of our previous speakers include:

Producers: Tim Bevan, Stephen Evans, Rebecca O'Brien, Richard Holmes, Jeremy Thomas, Duncan Kenworthy, Michael Kuhn, Nik Powell, Marc Samuelson, Richard Holmes, Michael Deeley, Simon Channing-Williams and Jeremy Bolt.

 

Directors: Sir Alan Parker, Waris Hussein, Roy Ward Baker, Vic Armstrong, Jack Cardiff, Ronnie Neame, Beban Kidron, Lewis Gilbert, John Glen, Guy Hamilton and Ray Harryhausen.

Executives: Duncan Reid (Ingenious), Greg Dyke, Ian Hutchinson (Silver Reel) Amanda Nevill (BFI), Stewart Till, Lenny Crooks (formerly of New Cinema Fund, UK Film Council), David Thompson, Steve Christian (Pinewood Films), Peter Bennett-Jones, Hilary Davis (Bankside); Mike Goodridge (Protagonist) John Woodward (former CEO, UK Film Council), Jane Lighting (former CEO Channel 5) and Lorraine Heggesey, Sara Geater.

 

Plus: Sir Roger Moore; Dick Clement; Honor Blackman; Sir Ronald Harwood; Patsy Pollock, Jon Hubbard and Jeremy Zimmerman (Casting Directors); David Cooke (director of BBFC); Dr Kim Howells MP & Shaun Woodward MP (former Film Ministers); Victor Spinetti (Actor); Nina Myscow (Broadcaster); Richard 'Jaws' Kiel (Actor \ Writer); Simon George (Ealing Studios Productions); Simon Oakes (Hammer Films) & many, many more.

the media lunch club also hosts a networking evening each year, our prestigious ' Martin Cahill Memorial Lecture'.

 

In 2009, we started holding the additional and occasional 'Briefing Lunches', to focus on a more specialised subject in an intimate board-room setting such as, most recently, a "Brexit and the implications on film industry" . These lunches are free, and have proven very popular.

 

Membership is inexpensive and open to all in the media business.

 

On April 19th Sir Alan Parker joined us for our 200th lunch, and cut the special birthday cake!

Jason Solomons
Film critic, broadcaster and author

Friday June 1st 2018

 

Jason Solomons is one of the UK’s most respected film critics. He’s a journalist, broadcaster, author and now influential blogger. Without doubt social media and word of mouth is becoming more important than ever in launching new films at festivals and theatrically. And it's instant - a film's chances can literally be made or broken overnight.

 

Jason is a regular critic on BBC News, Sky News and BBC Radio and is the former Chairman of the London Film Critics' Circle. He is a regular host on red carpets, presenter of Virgin Atlantic's in-flight entertainment show and has covered every Cannes Film Festival since 1997. He actually began his career as a journalist and the first graduate trainee at The Daily Express. There, he became showbiz editor and then film critic, before leaving in 1998 for The Mail on Sunday. He now also delivers his uncensored take on the latest films and movie news at jasonsolomons.com – plus exclusive interviews and podcasts featuring talent from across the cinematic spectrum.

 

He will share his thoughts on critics and their influence, look back on this year's Cannes Festival and offer up a few anecdotes and highlights of his decades meeting stars, directors and producers - and watching films.
