The Tribeca Film Festival already has a slate of interesting independent and documentary films lined up this year, to which it can now add another group — the slate for this year’s Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival, which runs concurrent with the Tribeca. The program will kick-off with Kevin Connolly’s Big Shot, which will serve as the program’s gala premiere. The program will also include four installments from ESPN’s “Nine for IX” series, designed to commemorate the anniversary of Title IX and women in sports.

“We produce our films with the intention of capturing both the glory and the heartbreak of what sports mean to so many people and we are very proud of the creative, story-driven documentaries that were selected for this year’s Festival,” said Connor Schell, vice president of ESPN Films in a statement.

Take a look at the full line-up for this year’s Tribeca/ESPN festivals after the jump.
