HBO president will receive Doc Mogul award

TORONTO -- HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins is to receive a Doc Mogul award at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in May.

Hot Docs, North America's largest documentary festival, will honor Nevins for bringing the factual genre into the mainstream since joining HBO in 1979 as director of documentary programming.

The Toronto doc festival, which last year gave the Doc Mogul trophy to the BBC's Nick Fraser, is set to run April 30-May 10.
