How do I cite a special feature from a DVD?

To cite a special feature from a DVD, follow the MLA template of core elements. List the title of the feature as the “Title of source.” Then provide the name of the DVD as the “Title of container,” followed by the publication details. If necessary for clarity, list the format in the optional-element slot at the end of the entry:

“NYC Press Conference.” Led Zeppelin, produced by Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers, disc 2, Atlantic Recording / Warner Music Group, 2003. DVD.

 If the special feature appears on a separate disc in a DVD set, treat the disc as an independent work contained in the collection:

“Behind the Scenes.” Bonus Materials. The Godfather DVD Collection, Paramount Pictures, 2001.
