During a press conference of the 9th FIRST International Film Festival on Monday, China Daily talks with Peter Pau, a Hong Kong-based cinematographer, winner of the Oscar for Best Cinematographer in 2000. As one of the Jury members of the 9th FIRST International Film Festival, Peter Pau interprets “FIRST” and gives some advice to this year's participants and young movie-makers.

Peter Pau Tak-Hei, born 1951 in Hong Kong, is a Hong Kong-based cinematographer, best known to western audiences as the cinematographer in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, for which he won the Best Cinematographer Oscar in 2000.

Pau is a member of the Hong Kong Society of Cinematographers. The asteroid 34420 Peterpau was named in his honour in early 2006. His older sister is Hong Kong Film Awards best actress winner Paw Hee-Ching.
