Modern Language Association (MLA) citation format is most commonly used for film and television studies research in humanities disciplines. Film and video are also increasingly studied in social science disciplines so examples in APA, Chicago, and Turabian styles are also provided. If you’re unsure what format you should follow, consult your professor or editor.
It is usual practice for both Chicago and Turabian style but not absolutely necessary, to cite your sources in both the notes and the bibliography. The practice of including both notes and a bibliography is still common practice among humanities scholars, so make sure to consult your instructor. If you choose not to include a bibliography in your paper or choose to create only a partial list of references, you must provide full details of the sources you cited in your notes. (The first time you mention a work in the notes, you must provide full publication details. All subsequent notes of the same work can be written in short form.) If, on the other hand, your bibliography includes all sources cited in the notes, you need not provide full publication details in the notes since a reader can consult the bibliography.
