Long Shot 1978
Maurice Hatton's Long Shot begins as an in-joke and evolves into a film that's fresh, cheerful and very appealing. It follows the adventures of Charlie and Neville, played by Charles Gormley and Neville Smith, as they scrape together the wherewithal to make a movie. Their search for a director leads them to the Edinburgh Film Festival. Eventually they recruit Wim Wenders. Mr. Wenders is one of a number of film-world denizens who make funny, good-natured appearances here.

Filmed around the 1977 Edinburgh Film Festival, Long Shot is a deadpan satire about the trials and tribulations of British independent filmmaking, with terrific cameos from Wim Wenders, Susannah York, Stephen Frears, Alan Bennett and John Boorman.
