Support Austerity Fight

Crowdfunding for Austerity Fight

A Feature Length Documentary by Phil Maxwell & Hazuan Hashim

Premiere date: June 2017


Hazuan Hashim and Phil Maxwell are making a documentary film about campaigns against austerity. We started filming in February 2016 in different locations around the UK. The film will be premiered in June 2017.

The austerity policies of the Tories have targeted young and old. The NHS is chronically under funded and is being privatised. Students are leaving college with huge debts. Children, pensioners and the disabled are living in poverty and millions live precarious lives on ‘zero hour contracts’. Austerity Fight will challenge the notion that we have to live in a world where public services are cut, worker’s rights removed and poverty is a daily reality for millions. Austerity Fight will champion equality, practical alternatives to Austerity and a vision of a world based on co-operation rather than the greed of a global super elite.

We need your help to fund this film. The work we have done so far has been financed by ourselves. We are now trying to raise up to £20,000 for post-production, free screening events around the UK and film festivals. We are determined to make this film; every donation made, no matter how small, will increase the production values of the film.

Following screenings at festivals, DVD copies will be available for £10 (inc. postage & packing). As independent and socialist filmmakers, we will also ensure the film is eventually available FREE online to watch and download.
