Several of Hugo’s films have been selected in the most prestigious festivals and have won numerous distinctions in Quebec and around the world. In 2005, Hugo founded the Montreal-based documentary production company esperamos, whose TV, web and cinema projects focus on "the important social questions of our time".
From 2014 to 2019, Hugo has chaired the Documentary Network (Observatoire du Documentaire), which brings together the main professional associations and institutions that produce documentaries in Canada. Hugo has also served on several national and international juries and he occasionally teaches documentary cinema at INIS (Montreal) and various other colleges and universities.
