February 15, 1839 (Original title: 15 février 1839) is a 1999 Quebec historical drama film. Directed by Pierre Falardeau, it is about the incarceration at the Pied-du-Courant Prison and the execution by hanging there of Patriote participants of the Lower Canada Rebellion. Those rebels sought to make Lower Canada, now Quebec, a republic independent from the British Empire.

It features the characters of the historical figures François-Marie-Thomas Chevalier de Lorimier, his wife Henriette and Charles Hindelang. Pierre Falardeau said that Telefilm Canada approved Michel Brault's 1999 movie Quand je serai parti... vous vivrez encore as an excuse to initially deny funds for 15 février, 1839.
