A native of Lujiang, Anhui, Yuan Chiu-feng was born in 1924 Harbin in Heilongjiang. Yuan was the student of Ma Xu Weibang, a famous Chinese director dubbed the “Master of Horror”. Yuan was the scriptwriter of some of his teacher’s works.

In early 1960s, Yuan joined Shaw Brothers and directed a few Cantonese films before he took up Mandarin directorship in 1962 through debut The Dream Of The Red Chamber. Also in the same year, in memory of his teacher’s tragic death from car accident a year earlier, he directed Mid-Nightmare (Part I and II) based on Ma-xu’s masterpiece Song At Midnight.

In mid-1960s, Yuan then defected to Cathay Organization. In October 1967, Yuan founded the Jinying Film Company with the brother-sister star duo Betty Loh Tih and Kelly Lai Chen. He directed several martial arts films produced by the company.

Yuan is married to Fang Ling (pen name Yi Fan), who is also a famous scriptwriter.
