Home > Five Flavours Film Festival

From 4th to 11th November, the 7th edition of Five Flavours Festival will be held in Warsaw. It is the Poland's only annual review of Asian cinema. The festival was first held in 2007 as the Vietnamese Film Review "Cinema in Five Flavors".

 It took a comprehensive retrospective of the Vietnamese film, the first in Poland and one of the few in the world. The next two editions were organized as a film festival "Cinema in Five Flavors". In 2008, the program was enriched by educational activities, related to the theme of multiculturalism and the presence of foreigners in Poland. During the next editions of the festival, films from other film industries in East and South-Eastern Asia, like Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan and Korea were included in the program.
This year's edition of the festival will be dedicated to Hong Kong.
This year's sections are:

  • New Asian Cinema: the competition; 9 recent films from East Asia and South-East Asia will be presented
  • Focus: Hong Kong: Each year the festival presents selected national cinema. This time we will see films by renowned masters - Johnnie To, Ann Hui and Pang Ho-cheung, as well as a selection of titles from young directors and two sets of shorts
  • Tetsuya Nakashima: an overview of the work of one of the most important and most recognizable Japanese filmmakers whose films have never been shown in Poland
  • Horror & Thriller Night: a movie marathon night with Asian horrors and thrillers 
  • Taiwanese New Wave: projections of classics from 16mm prints
  • Film screenings are accompanied by a rich program of other events: exhibitions, concerts, debates and meetings with artists. The event will be held at the Cinema Muranow, Cinema Luna and Poludnik Zero cafe.
