Felix and Meira Toronto Film-Festival

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired U.S. rights to Canadian romance “Felix and Meira” following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Felix and Meira” will screen next month as part of the San Sebastian Film Festival. Oscilloscope plans to release the film theatrically in 2015.

The film, directed by Maxime Giroux, is centered on a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother and a secular loner mourning the recent death of his estranged father. They unexpectedly meet in a local bakery in Montreal, starting an innocent friendship that becomes more serious.

The film is set against the backdrops of Montreal, Brooklyn, and Venice, Italy.

“Felix and Meira” was produced by Sylvain Corbeil and Nancy Grant from Metafilms. Eric Schnedecker of Urban Distribution International negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
