Q. How do I cite and reference a film?

*timestamp in 00:00 format or X 00:00
- You do not need to specify the format you watched a film on. However, if additional information is necessary (for example, if you watched an extended edition or a special feature on a certain DVD release), format it like this: [Film; special edition DVD]
- If you are directly quoting a film, include a timestamp in your in-text citation. Format it like this: (Lucas, 1977, 1:38:54)
