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.
Yeji is a make-up artist working for a capricious celebrity who likes to unload her frustrations onto her subordinates, indiscriminately pointing out their beauty flaws. Tormented by successive failures of her life, Yeji starts to blame her own appearance and becomes increasingly depressed. Unexpectedly, an anonymous package with a mysterious cosmetic that promises a magical makeover appears on her doorstep. The effects are truly spectacular, but what price will have to be paid for the stunning beauty?
The adaptation of the popular online comic is an example of an independent auteur Korean animation, which is flourishing in recent years. Definitely intended for the adult viewer, the plot is a combination of a dark surrealistic fairy tale and
a bloody body-horror, and at the same time a devastating satire on the unrealistic beauty standards in today's Korea and an Internet and media culture based on images polished to the limit.
Co-creator of an independent student animation collective, Animal. In 2000 with one of the members of the collective, director Goo Bong-hee, Cho formally established the animation house Studio Animal. Their first film together was
