"Platform" (zh-cp|c=站台|p=Zhàntái) is a 2000 film written and directed by Jia Zhangke. The film is named after a popular song about waiting at a railway platform.

It is set in and around the small city of Fenyang, Shanxi province, China, from the end of 1970s to the beginning of 1990s. Fenyang was also the birthplace of director Jia Zhangke. The film is called "an epic of grassroots".

It follows a group of twenty-something performers as they face personal and societal changes.

Dialogue is a mixture of local speech, mainly Jin Chinese and Standard Mandarin.
