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.
A documentary film crew arrives at Isan in Northwest Thailand to make a film about shamans chosen by the local goddess to serve their community. For years, the gift – or the burden – of the shaman calling is kept in one family. Is a teenager who is acting somehow strangely simply under the influence of raging hormones or is she being called by the voice of Ba Yan? Or maybe there is someone else hoping to control the susceptible young soul?
This hypnotic film, which oftentimes leads the viewers astray, came to life as a result of a cooperation between two masters of dazzling horrors from Thailand and South Korea. The director is Banjong Pisanthanakun, whose "Shutter" took international markets by storm in the mid-2000s and was already remade several times. The producer and co-writer, Na Hong-jin, is the author of the visionary film "Wailing." The two masters create a dark, subversive story, cleverly intertwining the mystique of the local culture with a contemporary message. The rustle of leaves in the foggy forests of the Thai province, family secrets coming to light and immediately hidden back under the guise of appearances, spectacular false rituals, and the truest, cruelest horror quietly creeping up upon you – this screening will not be easily forgotten.
Director and screenwriter. His first projects, horrors "Shutter" (2004) and "Alone" (2007) written and directed together with Parkpoom Wongpoom, turned out to be incredibly successful. Since then, he was making films of various genres, from comedies to melodramas.
