Saturday 14 November, 1pm: ‘Felix and Meira’
Félix and Meira is a calling card for its young director, Maxime Giroux, one of Canada’s rising stars; a story of an unconventional romance between two people living vastly different realities mere blocks away from one another. Hasidic Jewish wife and mother Meira (Hadas Yaron) and Félix (Martin Dubreuil) meet in a local bakery in Montreal’s Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as Felix opens Meira’s eyes to the world outside of her tight-knit Orthodox community.

Saturday 14 November, 3pm: The Amina Profile
In Montreal, Sandra is caught in an erotic and intellectual online romance with Amina, a Syrian-American woman living in Damascus. Amina is the author of the blog A Gay Girl in Damascus, a source for respected news media of on-the-ground stories of the Syrian uprising. But when Amina is seemingly abducted and Sandra begins a campaign to free her, no one—not even the US State Department—can find a trace of her.
