The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Film Developmrent Council:

     The Chairman of the Hong Kong Film Development Council (FDC), Dr Wilfred Wong Ying-wai, today (July 3) expressed deep sorrow over the passing of famous film director Mr Alex Law Kai-yui.

     Mr Wong said, "Alex is a leading figure in the development of the local film industry. Being an outstanding Hong Kong film director, he had earned a lot of achievement throughout his career. He had also contributed a lot to the local film industry. He was member of the FDC from 2013 to 2015. Being the Chairman of the FDC, I am particularly impressed by Alex's enthusiasm to support the programmes launched by the FDC. He joined the Directors' Succession Scheme in order to pass his exceptional directing knowledge and experiences to the younger generation. He also helped assess the works of the Scriptwriting Incubation Programme and First Feature Film Initiative for identifying screenwriting talents and new directors. His departure is a huge loss for the local film industry and he will be truly missed."
