My Prince Edward
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.
Is marriage still a necessary attribute of the adult life in the 21st century? Fong is working in a mall specializing in wedding accessories, but when she is faced with a decision to put on a wedding ring herself, her doubts keep snowballing. Legalizing the relationship she has been in for years seems like a mere formality, but the protagonist's past holds a dark secret. Returning to the unfinished situation from many years ago and the clash with the pressures of wedding planning will raise many existential questions in Fong's mind.
A brilliant comedy-drama about relationships, defining personal freedom, and the clash between romantic fairy tales and a much more complex reality turns the convention of a romantic comedy upside down. Instead of the wedding bon mots and the candy-sweet plot twists, we get a realist, yet very humorous insight into the life of a young woman in a big metropolis, faced with the expectations of her conservative family and the widely accepted vision of life created by ads filled with snow-white dresses and cute pink babies. The intriguing insight into the world of the protagonist making unusual life choices has earned the first-time director Norris Wong the title of the new hope of Hong Kong cinema.
Hong Kong director, scriptwriter and lyricist. Norris Wong received her MFA in Film Production from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2012. She has directer short films and worked as an assistant director (for "Down There" and "Where Are You Going" by Yang Zhenfang, among others). Her short film "Fall’ (2013) won the Best Script Award at the Hong Kong FreshWave International Short Film Festival. "My Prince Edward" is her feature debut.
