Thank you for being with us during the 16th Five Flavours!

06 December 2022

The 16th edition of the Festival came to an end. While it lasted, you have been watching films in cinemas and at home, and engaged in inspiring conversations in our discussion group. We want to thank you for the impressive turnout, your enthusiasm and positive emotions! We also encourage you to fill in the Festival Survey.

For the second year in a row, Five Flavours was held in a hybrid form, which allowed us to retain its cinema-based character and, at the same time, reach Asian cinema enthusiasts all over Poland. The Festival lasted for the record 19 days, which allowed the viewers to enjoy the films at their own pace. The program included 39 films, 30 of them were available online.

The statistics are impressive. The Festival films were watched almost 30.000 times – over 9.000 viewers visited the cinemas, and the films were played online exactly 20.685 times. This is just the raw data, single screenings of the films. But, without doubt, many were watched by whole families or groups of friends, and therefore the actual number of viewers was higher.

Fill in the Festival Survey

Every year after the end of the Festival, we kindly ask you to share your experiences and thoughts about it in the Festival Survey. It helps us assess this year's edition, understand the needs of our audiences, and prepare for future events. You can fill in the Survey till December 14. All participants will have a chance to win posters for Wong Kar Wai's films and vouchers for the online screenings of his masterpieces!
