This page provides a few examples of how to cite different types of audiovisual resources such as motion pictures, documentaries, podcasts, or online videos.
Note: An APA Style reference for a motion picture requires the names of the producer, director, film title, and country of origin. If you used a source available in the Brock University Library collection, then this information is provided in the Omni record for the item. Remember to include the media type notation, such as motion picture or DVD, in square brackets after the title.
