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.
Marianne and Yin are a couple who, along with many of their friends, were actively participating in the prodemocratic Yellow Umbrellas protests spreading through Hong Kong in 2014. They both believe what they are doing is right, but the places where each of them draws the line of activist sacrifice vary. They are the members of a generation which, instead of making careers and carefree life plans, has to face the questions about the most difficult political issues, fight for citizens' rights for themselves and the others, and make choices that will weigh heavily on their futures.
In the span of a few years, we are watching young people, whose paths keep coming together and apart again, the clashes of different attitudes and beliefs, but also the emotional and personal dilemmas common for young people on the verge of adulthood. The director managed to portray the stories of regular people interrupted by politics, but he does not judge the choices they make in the face of this experience – he shows different motivations, aspirations and dreams shaping the paths of the people of Hong Kong today.
