The Five Flavours Film Festival grows out of the social and cultural activities of the Arteria Art Foundation.

These actions aimed to raise public awareness about the presence of Vietnamese and other foreign communities in Poland, especially in Warsaw. Projects such as "Wiet Nam Gra" (2005) and "Journey to Asia" (2006) and subsequent editions of the festival are recognized in the NGO community as examples of good practice in working with foreign communities and national and ethnic minorities. Arteria projects proved to fill the gap in the cultural space of the city. "Journey to Asia" was recognized as the most interesting cultural event of 2006 by readers and journalists of "Gazeta Wyborcza Co Jest Grane".

The festival was first held in 2007 as the Vietnamese Film Review "Cinema in Five Flavours". It covered the extensive retrospective of Vietnamese cinema, the first in Poland and one of the few in the world. The program featured the most important films made by Vietnamese artists - both accepted by the Vietnamese Communist government as well as those created by the artists who emigrated away from Vietnam, and whom are banned in Vietnam. So, the organizers did not take advantage of the easy cooperation with the Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in Poland and decided to act independently. This has become the rule in all subsequent editions of the festival, and the political independence of the event is a consequence of prioritizing the artistic and cultural values of the program.

The next two editions took place as the Film Festival "Five Flavours Cinema ".

In 2008, the program was enriched by the educational activities. During the second edition of the festival there was a series of workshops for educators and teachers working in their classes with Vietnamese students. This task has evolved in subsequent years to a wider cycle of educational activities related to the subject of multiculturalism and the presence of foreigners in Poland.

From the beginning of the film projections is also accompanied by a rich program of additional events: exhibitions, concerts, debates, meetings with artists.

During the subsequent editions, the program expanded with other East and South East Asian cinemas: in 2009 a large retrospective of cinema of Thailand, 2010 Singapore and Korea, in 2011 Taiwan and Japan, in 2012 Malaysia and Hong Kong. Vietnam was, however, still present in the form of the latest films and in the program of accompanying events. Over time, the Five Flavours has become the only annual review of Asian cinema in Poland and the recognized, well-known known and respected film event. With his ambitious, the festival program is directed to the demanding viewer. It is also appreciated by film critics.

EVER YEAR THE FESTIVAL HOSTS OUTSTANDING ASIAN MOVIE DIRECTORS.

SO, FAR PEN-EK RATANARUANG, BUI THAC CHUYEN, HO TZU NYEN, DAIN SAID, EFFENDEE MAZLAN WERE FIVE FLAVOURS FESTIVAL GUESTS.

Enriching the festival program by movies from other regions of East and Southeast Asia, the festival has set itself the goal of broad and original presentation of this region to Polish audiences. Economic transformations in China, Vietnam, Malaysia or the Philippines, but also the persistence and transformation of some of the world's most powerful dictatorship’s in Burma and North Korea, are largely ignored in Poland. Cinema is a great medium to talk about this part of the world from different points of view and build sensitivity to Asian culture.
