The film follows 12-year-old Londoner Georgie, who, following the death of her mother, tries to make a go at living on their own.

The creative drama, from UK film-maker Charlotte Regen, warmed hearts at the Sundance Film Festival by winning the Grand Jury Prize.

Following acclaim at the Venice Film Festival, Love Life will also be part of the BFI programme at Vue, screening on September 13 and then again on October 4.

The story follows Taeko, a married woman who faces challenges in family, love and life when the long-lost father of her son reappears in their life deaf, ill and homeless.

Completing the trio of indie films is The Old Oak, which is centred around a pub landlord in the midst of a mining community in County Durham, telling the tale of friendship and immigration after the landlord befriends a local Syrian refugee, despite rising tensions in the town.

The Old Oak will first run on September 27 before it receives an encore on October 11.
