Curt Hahn received his BFA in Film from the California Institute of the Arts. In 1976 he moved to Nashville and founded Film House, now the largest film production company in Tennessee, producing hundreds of projects annually from its 40,000 square foot studio. He directed the documentary Lead Belly: The Man Who Invented Rock & Roll, the story of Hudie Ledbetter. Transcendent, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Film House, produces the kind of inspiring, uplifting films that are often overlooked by Hollywood—meaningful stories that speak to the viewer’s heart. Its current projects include Jubilee, based on the remarkable story of Ella Sheppard and the original Fisk Jubilee Singers, who introduced the Negro Spirituals to the world in 1871. Transcendent’s first film, No Regrets, starring Janine Turner and Kate Jackson, has been a worldwide success. Transcendent’s co-production Two Weeks, starring Sally Field, was released globally by MGM.
