APA has special rules for citing films. Instead of a publisher location and name they ask for the country of origin and studio. However, what makes it a little confusing, is that in the example they provide they entirely omit location and the studio name and instead have a line where it says: Available from [studio homepage URL]. Information on both ways of doing a film or movie citation can be found on the APA Manual page 209.

Examples:

Ferguson, S. & Saines, E. G. (Producers). (2010). Temple grandin [DVD]. USA: Home Box Office.

Or

Ferguson, S. & Saines, E. G. (Producers). (2010). Temple grandin [DVD]. Available from http://www.hbo.com/movies

An episode in a television series should be cited in a similar way as a chapter in a book. The script writer and director should be used in the place of the chapter authors and producer in the place of the editor.
