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.
Just as the ratings of Rafflesii Pong’s cultural show are on their last legs, its guest, an avant-garde poet, decides to kick the bucket in front of the cameras. The sensation-craved corporate media are ecstatic, which the cunning reporter uses to her advantage. But her success philosophy seems to be completelyforeign to Eric – an idealist inventor who sneaks through the same corridors, and is completely incapable of promoting his life-changing products.
How to find your footing in a dog-eat-dog world of sales? And why does money only cling to the rich? This unique corporate musical is an intelligent, provocative satire about the modern reality, the economic elites andmass culture. Ironically, this absolutely cult Malaysian mixture of dynamic script, original protagonists andabsurd-ridden reality, was kept in the cinematic freezer for years due to corporate scuffles. In 2020, it comesback with a bang without losing any of its topicality. The dialogues, sharper than the edges of annual reports, will dazzle not only glass skyscrapers regulars.
