A Wintec Library guide to referencing in APA 7th edition style

Referencing a film

When referencing a film, use the director as the author. It is not necessary to specify how you watched the film (e.g., in the cinema, on DVD, or online), though the specific format and descriptive information can be included in the square brackets after the title where necessary (for example, if the film is a special extended version on DVD, an educational video, etc).

Director, A. (Director). (Date). Title of film in italic sentence case [Film]. Production Company.

Campion, J. (Director). (1993). The piano [Film]. Australian Film Commission.
