Screenings of two films by artist Andy Warhol and Woody Allen's new movie Match Point are among highlights of the 43rd Viennale film festival in Vienna.

Warhol's The Velvet Underground and Space will be shown at the festival, which takes place from 14-26 October.

A total of 15 world premieres are among the 291 films from 48 countries to be featured, organisers said.

Several lectures on pioneering US artist Warhol - famous for his Pop Art prints - are also in the programme.

Nearly half the films this year are documentaries, traditionally a focal point of the Austrian festival.
