Internationally, Zhang is best known for her roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) and Memoirs of a Geisha (2005). For The Grandmaster (2013), she won 12 best actress awards, becoming the most prized actress for a single film in China.

Zhang has also served as a jury member at the Cannes Film Festival and the Toronto Int'l Film Festival. In 2019, Zhang became the first Asian actress to host a Cannes Film Festival masterclass.

Co-hosted by China Media Group and People’s Government of Hainan Province, both virtual and in-person screenings will be held at the HIIFF this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. More than 200 films from 60 countries will be featured.
