Citations for electronic resources are, by and large, the same as for their print equivalents except that online materials are more likely to have multiple containers. Note that when it comes to online materials, the "Date of Access" element is optional.
A film citation usually starts with the "Title of Source." "Original Publication Date" is an optional element. You may also list any other persons relevant to your paper or that will help with identification of the film, including screenwriters, actors, producers, etc in the "Other Contributors" element. Finally, the film's distributor goes in the "Publisher" element.
If you want to focus on some aspect of the film, like the direction, you can put that individual in the "Author" element.
This is how you would cite an episode viewed on a streaming service.
If you do not have a name for the author or creator of the content, you simply put the name of the uploader in the "Other Contributor" location.
