You should use the below format in your bibliography when creating a reference for a film source:

Title [film]. Year. DIRECTOR (use dir.) Place of production: Production company.

Here is an example:

  • Aliens [film]. 1986. JAMES CAMERON dir. USA: Twentieth Century Fox.

If it is a film on DVD/video/Blu-ray please use the below format:

Title [medium]. Year. DIRECTOR (use dir.) Country of origin: Production company.

Here is an example:

  • Gladiator [DVD]. 2000. RIDLEY SCOTT dir. USA: Universal, DreamWorks, Scott Free Productions.
