Tose: The Movie

Directed by Mike Tollin

Upcoming Schedule

30 for 30 Shorts is a collection of stories from the specific point of view of the filmmaker, showcasing his or her unique take and visual style. By moving away from the traditional multiple-act treatment with a tighter narrative, the short film format provides filmmakers flexibility in the types of stories they can tell. The first short film in the series, "Here Now" directed by Emmy winner Eric Drath, debuted in 2012 and told the story of Pete Rose -- banned for life by Major League Baseball -- finding work in a Las Vegas memorabilia store. It was followed by "Arnold's Blueprint," directed by Jeff and Michael Zimbalist ("The Two Escobars"), which focused on Arnold Schwarzenegger's teenage years in the Austrian army and his drive to use the sport of bodybuilding to catapult himself to international stardom. Since 2012, ESPN Films has debuted dozens of other shorts from directors such as Alex Gibney, Ken Jeong, Colin Hanks, Molly Schiot and Angus Wall, while tackling subjects from Muhammad Ali's rescue mission in Iraq to the bombing at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta to arguably the most lopsided trade in NFL history.
