Set against the beauty of Montreal, this is a sensitive love story that will delight fans of the miniseries Unorthodox.


TJFF is proud to be the inspiration for the first online Jewish Film Festival in France and to share this Canadian selection for audiences both in France and here at home.  

Felix and Meira

Available to view Thursday, January 21 – Friday, January 22

Hadas Yaron (Fill the Void) is enchanting as a young married Hasidic woman with a child who is quietly searching for something. She meets Félix, an eccentric and penniless French Canadian, played with earthy charm by Martin Dubreuil. Set against the beauty of Montreal, this is a sensitive love story between two people from two distinct worlds.
Félix et Meira is a timely reminder that there are different kinds of rights to freedom — the right to maintain long-held religious traditions, and the right to choose one’s own identity” (Agata Smoluch Del Sorbo, Toronto International Film Festival).
This screening includes a newly-recorded Q&A with director Maxime Giroux.
