I am writing about the film Gallipoli by Peter Weir in an essay APA format. Do I need to put the title of the film in italics?
APA is an Author-Date referencing system, and so the film should be referenced with the author and date of publication.
The example below is from the University's APA Referencing Guide:
Coppola, Kurtz, and Lucas (1973) OR (Coppola, Kurtz, & Lucas, 1973)
Coppola, F. F. (Producer), & Kurtz, G. (Producer), & Lucas, G. (Director). (1973). American graffiti [Motion picture]. USA: Universal Studios.
When mentioning the title of the film in the body of the text, it should also be italicised (APA Publication Manual Section 4.21).
Please refer to the links below for more information.
