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.
Hye-won did not find what she was looking for in the big city, so she leaves her temporary job in Seoul and returns to a small town where she grew up. In the city she always felt hungry – now, in the familiar surroundings, she discovers memories full of flavors and aromas, trying to recreate the food of her childhood, and to restore her life balance, step by step.
This adaptation of a Japanese manga is a love letter to real food, filled with the taste of sun-kissed fruit and the tenderness of the hard-working hands that prepared it. The director, a plant-based cuisine enthusiast herself, focuses on this aspect of Korean food, demonstrating the potential of local, seasonal produce. This light, unhurried story is a true feast for the senses and a refreshment for the city-worn spirit.
Director and producer, she has been recognized by critics and viewers for her gentle but powerful directing in films such as "Three Friends" and "Waikiki Brothers". She often tells stories of women’s lives and marginalized lives in a plain format and calm narrative. Her works are welcomed warmly by the audience, becoming box office hits - such as "Forever the Moment" (2008), based on the true story of the 2004 Korean women’s national handball team that won the silver medal at the Athens Olympics or "Whistleblower" (2014) which takes after the story of the fraudulent stem cell scientist. Besides of filmmaking she's engaged in ecological movements, and has a leadership position at an animal protection group.
