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.
