Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild - Directors - Siu Kwan LAU
劉強富 | LAU Siu Kwan

I believe the present situation of the Hong Kong film industry is the sunset for filmmakers. When can we see the sunrise again? This requires many factors coming together in support of each other. We have the talents, but what kind of support does the government give us? Governments like those of Taiwan and Thailand helped their industries in times of need, providing first-rate support. But the Hong Kong government had only staged congratulatory activities, creating first-rate shams.

May I ask, now that the film industry is in recession, will the new generation get involved? That would be a joke. Film is like poison; one may love this trade, but one needs to survive. Let us strengthen ourselves!


Gin Lau Siu-kwan was born in Hong Kong in 1959. He graduated in 1980 from the TVB training program and had acted in both TVB and Asia Television. In 1989, he established his own company, collaborating with Taiwan’s China Motion Picture to produce the crime thriller The Real Me (1991). Since then, he had worked on over 60 films, serving as producer, production manager and actor, such as Pink Bomb (1993), directed by Felix Chiu, Ninth of September, the Cursed Day (1996) and Home of a Villain (2000).

Lau started directing in the early 1990s, making mostly genre pictures and had worked steadily in Hong Kong and, later, Mainland China. He remained active in show business, producing films, acting and organizing concerts.
