Zhou Xiaowen (simplified Chinese: 周晓文; traditional Chinese: 周曉文; pinyin: Zhōu Xiǎowén) (b. Beijing, 1954) is a Chinese filmmaker. He graduated from the Cinematography Department of the Beijing Film Academy in 1975 and is part of the so-called Fifth Generation of Chinese filmmakers.
Zhou's thrillers received commercial success. Due to government censorship several of his films were prevented from being released. Very few people not in China knew about Zhou before the 1994 release of Ermo.
