A Light Never Goes Out
Press Play to start
At the 17th 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, 14 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.

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 those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
You can use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
For years, Bill's greatest passion and profession was crafting neon signs using traditional methods, recently replaced by cheaper LED lights. When he dies, his wife Mei-hsiang decides to step into her husband's workshop and continue his legacy by finishing his last project. Can she and Bill's apprentice revive the iconic sign that has been lighting up the city for decades?
Starring in the debut of director Anastasia Tsang are two icons of Hong Kong cinema, Sylvia Chang and Simon Yam. The result of their cooperation is a tale portraying a part of the city's history from an unexpected point of view. "A Light Never Goes Out" is not only an intimate love ode and a delicate poem about the city long known for the neon signs flooding its streets with characteristic, deeply saturated colors. It is also a nostalgic tribute to the great craftspeople whose professions are rarely remembered today.
