Platform Films is an award winning production company which specialises in trade union, peace and social movement film-making.

By making these brilliant films over the years, Platform has filled a gap that is so obvious in the media – that it doesn’t cover labour and progressive causes properly.

RMT is proud to be associated with a film company that unashamedly knows which side it is on, and is carrying the tradition of gutsy, agitprop, socialist film-making to a new generation in the 21st century.

Platform Films originated during the vibrant independent film movement of the 70s and 80s and is one of very few companies to have survived and adapted while retaining the commitment to egalitarian ideals.
