Press Play to start
The 15th edition of the Five Flavours Asian Film Festival will feature, for the first time, a seat reservation system at cinema screenings for holders of passes and stationary accreditations. 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, 16 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 16, 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 Wong Kar Wai'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.
A perfectly composed melodrama about three young people experiencing the passions of love for the first time. Jonathan and Shane have been friends since they were kids and the teacher put the top student and the little rebel together to help the latter in his studies. As teenagers, they meet Carrie, who has just moved from Taiwan to Hong Kong. The girl is drawn to Jonathan, but he is struggling to admit to himself that his heart belongs to Shane.
This touching story about true friendships, painful loneliness, and discovering unwanted feelings that can change your life became one of the most iconic LGBTIQ+ films in Chinese-language cinema. It was not the first film about a boy’s feelings for his friend, but the summer aura and the atmosphere ripe with emotions that the filmmakers managed to create has successfully seduced the audiences in Taiwan and beyond. The nostalgic look at the last high school moments, the torture of a hidden feeling, and the fear of rejection – it has all the necessary elements of a teenage romance, enclosed in captivating frames and completed with atmospheric music.
For the 15th anniversary of the premiere, the film was restored and digitized so that the next generations can freely discover its charm.
