Laurie Kahn

Founder, Producer, Director and Writer at Blueberry Hill Productions

Laurie Kahn always wanted to be a writer but got the film bug when she was in grad school studying philosophy in England. She started her film career by helping a friend make an adaptation of a Guy de Maupassant story. While working on this project, she found paying work on the side writing film reviews for the Times Literary Supplement and Time out.

In 1992, Laurie founded Blueberry Hill Productions where she could work with excellent independent filmmakers who wanted their stories to be heard. Her first independent film, A Midwife’s Tale, was based on the daily diary of an 18th century midwife, Martha Ballard and Laurel Thatcher’s Pulitzer prize-winning book.

Love Between the Covers is Blueberry Hill Productions’ third feature length film and will mark its world premiere at the Toronto International Hot Docs Festival in Toronto, Canada.
