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.
A public place sees a shocking outburst of violence – a masked young man brutally attacks someone with a sword. What caused this act of aggression? Who is the perpetrator and who did he choose as his victim? In his achronological, multi-layered story, Ho Wi Ding slowly reveals to the audiences the stories of five people in their 20s connected with the incident, and the relationships between them. We learn about their initially unclear past, their troubles and motivations.
Terrorizers are a visually stunning, masterfully composed, nihilistic portrait of loneliness in modern Taipei filled with new technologies. How is real life affected by the digital reality people sink into ever more often and ever much deeper? Is it possible to truly erase your past in a world where everything is being recorded? Terrorizers are in no way connected to Edward Yang’s 1986 movie of the same title. It is a modern reflection on the condition of the inhabitants of Taiwan’s capital. How much has the city changed over the nearly four decades?
