Archive - 11th Five Flavours Film Festival

New Asian Cinema

New Asian Cinema Competition Section

Each year, the New Asian Cinema competition is the highlight of Five Flavours program. It's a selection of the most original and wildly discussed new productions from East, Southeast and South Asia.


The filmmakers competing for the Grand Prix of the Festival are not afraid to take up serious subjects and lead the cinema of the region in new directions. Their films are unique in both form and subject, pushing the borders of cinematic imagination, and shedding new light on the problems of the modern world. This year, Five Flavours competition section includes several titles in which auteur cinema is brilliantly intertwined with generic conventions – the framework of a thriller, western, or gangster film is used to speak about the challenges of the contemporary world.


Most of the competition screenings will be followed by Q&A sessions with the festival's guests. Among the filmmakers to introduce their films at 11th Five Flavours are Ho Yuhang (Malaysia), Le Binh Giang (Vietnam), Mouly Surya (Indonesia), Dechen Roder (Bhutan), Heiward Mak (Hong Kong), Daisuke Miyazaki (Japan) and Katsuya Tomita (Japan).


The winner of the 3,500 EUR Grand Prix sponsored by the Polish Film Institute will be chosen by the People’s Jury, made up of cinema enthusiasts and fans of Asian culture. Another honorary award-winner will be chosen by the NETPAC Jury, the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema, which will be composed of: Sonali Joshi (UK), Siddiq Barmak (Afghanistan), Cüneyt Cebenoyan (Turkey).
