Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
The family life of Mr and Ms Yan, members of Taipei’s middle class, has long been devoid of any energy and is fueled only by routine and mutual exhaustion.

Then, an unexpected phone call drastically changes the marital dynamics. A woman Mr Yan had an affair with years before is suffering from dementia and was put in a home. What will Ms Yan do when the painful memories start coming back to her?
