Who We Are 

Soho Media Club is a members network designed to advocate collaboration, inclusion and diversity across media production, post-production and distribution.  Anyone can join the network for free, regardless of seniority, position or status.  The only criteria is that you are an active media professional in film, tv, digital or music.

 

We share 3 key beliefs: Collaboration, Inclusion and Everyone having a Voice.   

 

Underpinned by monthly meetups, in a secret Soho location, the club brings together passionate people with stories to share. Guest speakers take to the mic each month to share their passions and personal stories.  After each meetup, members receive content to read, watch, listen and reflect upon.

 

Since its launch in July 2019, Soho Media Club has attracted a membership of 600+ media professionals from production, post-production and distribution.

Our mission 

To cultivate an inclusive media community which has a lasting, positive impact on the culture of the media industry.  

OUR ETHOS

Collaboration, diversity & inclusion is part of our DNA.

We believe in diversity of thought and a growth mindset. By connecting passionate people from across media together, we are engineering serendipity to enable amazing things to happen - whether that is generating new ideas, doing new business or finding new talent.

Team

We're Tom and Jaisica, the founders of Soho Media Club. We met at a media & entertainment show in Las Vegas two years ago and quickly discovered a common passion for connecting people.    

 

We share 3 key beliefs: Collaboration, Inclusion and Everyone having a Voice.  We saw an opportunity to create a club for those in the production, post-production and distribution community who share our beliefs and want to make the whole industry better.

SOHO MEDIA CLUB WAS CROWDFUNDING

Our aim is to build a more diverse and inclusive media culture and we believe that the Festival will be a joyful way of bringing people together from all media backgrounds to talk about how to collaborate more and to create lasting positive impact.

 

To run the Festival, we need to cover the operating costs inc. venue, catering, marketing etc. We have therefore launched a crowdfunding campaign to give people who want to support our mission the opportunity to get behind it. If you could donate something towards the Festival, we'd be so grateful!

 

 

Our goal is to raise £3,000 by 26th February! It's a huge target but we believe that with a donation of approx £20 from each individual, we can do this and create something extremely positive and has a lasting impact.
