Long Shot


Amidst the who’s who of the 1977 Edinburgh International Film Festival, our heroes Neville Smith and Charles Gormley accept a lift from Stephen Frears, discuss “kissing and cuddling” with Jim Haynes, consult Alan Bennett, and pitch their script to Wim Wenders, John Boorman and other luminaries. This is a unique opportunity to take a retrospective look at both this fascinating film and EIFF in the 1970s.
