TRIBECA TALKS INDUSTRY - ESPN FILMS BEYOND THE PLAYING FIELD
ESPN Films has become an industry heavyweight in the genre of sports filmmaking. With the success of 30 for 30, ESPN Films has broken away from what was traditionally thought of as a sports film and redefined the genre. By showcasing stories of passion, triumph, and loss, the resurgence of sports-themed films has never been stronger. Inspired by the 40th anniversary of Title IX, ESPN Films will air a series of nine documentaries in spring/summer of 2013 that will highlight women in sports, all by female storytellers. Join us for a conversation on the evolution of women's sports with director Amy Berg, ESPN Films' Libby Geist, producer and Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal, and Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker. Moderated by ESPN's Chris Connelly.
