The forthcoming London Film Festival has added the UK premiere of Sarah Gavron's Brick Lane. The film will screen as a Film On The Square screening the night of Oct 26.

Gavron said: 'I am delighted that the film will be in the London Film Festival. It is a film made and set in London, that embraces everything London is today - there isn't a more appropriate place for it to premiere.'

Brick Lane, adapted from Monica Ali's 2003 bestseller, is about a young Bangladeshi woman who moves to London.

Alison Owen's Ruby Films produced, with backing from Film4 and the UK Film Council. The Works International is handling sales.

After an unofficial premiere in Telluride, the film had its official world premiere in Toronto and has also played San Sebastian. It will also screen in Dinard.
