Advice on Citing Films

In citing film and other media, use the citation form for the format in which you watched the work being cited.

For example:

  • If you watched the film Casablanca on DVD and want to cite it, use the citation format for DVD (not the film original). 
  • If you watched Casablanca in a movie theater, use citation format for film. 
  • If you are citing a documentary or program that you watched on DVD/videotape, but which was originally broadcast on television, use the citation format for DVD/videotape. 
  • If you are citing a trailer for a theatrical movie that you watched on the internet, use the citation format for online resources.

Cite Sources with Zotero

Citation Managers are tools to help you keep track of your citations as you research and to create/format your citations and bibliography. For example, Zotero allows you to keep citations, full text articles, and other research resources organized in one place. You can also use these tools to format your bibliographies and the notes/citations in your papers according to the appropriate style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.).
