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.
One day Dharma, a nice, talkative owner of a small beauty parlor, discovers that his name appeared on the list of local drug addicts. This means trouble – president Duterte is waging a ruthless, country-wide war against addiction, and a wave of executions of supposedly guilty people is sweeping through the country. Who put Dharma on the list and why? And who can take him off it? The horrified young man has to act quickly – he can still save himself if he learns about the local allegiances and reaches those making decisions, diving deep into the dark world of power, corruption and money. The truth about what’s lurking under the surface of the Philippine reality will be truly astounding.
The fast-paced Big Night! is another one of Jun Robles Lana’s films in the Five Flavours program set during one long night. But while Shadow Behind the Moon shown at the 9th edition of the Festival was a thick, psychological war drama, Big Night! is a pitch-black comedy, balancing between laughter and the macabre, diagnosing the horrifying reality of the modern-day Philippines.
