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.
An animated film noir, reminiscent of movies by Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie. The plot is centered around the eponymous bag – Hitchcock's classic McGuffin, a mysterious object whose sole presence stimulates the protagonists' passions and pushes the action forward. How far will the bodyguard, Mr. S., go to get his hand on the precious cargo?
The experience is created using an extremely toilsome technique, in which the filmmaker draws every single line by hand, using a virtual paintbrush in the VR space. The classic scene cuts were replaced by a whole range of creative transitions, allowing for smooth changes of the surroundings and eliminating disorientation. The effect is very expressive and it perfectly fits the tale of a dark object of desire and people obsessed by the need to posses it.
