iW NEWS | IFP to Honor Nevins

Sheila Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films, will be honored with a Gotham Award Tribute at the IFP‘s 18th Annual Gotham Awards on Tuesday, December 2nd in New York. “Sheila has unquestionably been one of the most influential forces in documentary filmmaking,” said IFP’s Michelle Byrd, in a statement. “She is almost singlehandedly responsible for bringing documentaries into mainstream popular culture. Her work has not only changed the documentary landscape, it’s opened minds and spurred change.” Over the summer, Nevins spoke about her life and career at a special “Evening with Sheila Nevins” event at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
