    LONG SHOT (BFI Flipside 034) (DVD + Blu-ray)
    A film by Maurice Hatton

    THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.

    Rarely seen in the last 40 years our latest Flipside marks the release of this important and funny slice of Scottish cinema. A budding Scottish film producer tries to get his ambitious Aberdeen-set western financed, and while he attracts some major stars and directors to the film, he finds that with their support come more and more script changes...

    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 Charles Gormley, Wim Wenders, Susannah York, Stephen Frears, Alan Bennett and John Boorman.

    Extras:

    • Scene Nun, Take One (Maurice Hatton, 1964, 26 mins): short film starring Susannah York and directed by Maurice Hatton
    • Sean Connery's Edinburgh (1982, 28 mins): short film starring the iconic actor. The film was sponsored by the City of Edinburgh District Council and aimed at increasing tourist trade
    • Hooray for Holyrood (Ross Wilson, 1986, 50 mins): Scottish Television short presented by Robbie Coltrane celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Edinburgh Film Festival
    • Booklet with new writing from Bill Forsyth, Vic Pratt and Dylan Cave, plus full film credits
