Hi, my name is Cristina Gutierrez-Brewster. I'm an English teacher, and today I'll be telling you how to properly cite a film in scientific format. Now, when you speak of scientific format, lot of times we assume that you are speaking of the APA format. But still clarify with your professor if that is how the paper should be written. When you're doing a film, make sure to include the producer's name as the first thing that the person sees. Make sure that you follow the same format as with a book author. Their last name goes first, followed by comma, the first initial, period. After that, make sure to include in parentheses that that person is indeed a producer. Second thing you want to include is the & sign, followed by the director's name. Same thing with the producer; You want to put the last name first, comma, first initial, capitalized, and then next to it put the word "director", followed by a period. Next thing you want to include is the year that it was distributed. The fourth thing is the title of the film. Make sure put that in italics, and that first letter of the first word should be in capitals. Next to it in brackets you can put "Film". The fifth thing you want to include is the country of origin, where it was created, followed by colon. And the last thing is the distribution company. Make sure that that title of the distribution company is in all caps. The first letter should be capitalized, followed by a period. Once again, my name is Cristina Gutierrez-Brewster, and that was how to properly cite a film in scientific format.
