From 'Blue Velvet' to 'The Virgin Suicides': Here Are the Films that Inspired the 2015 AFI FEST Filmmakers

In advance of the 2015 AFI FEST, Indiewire sent out a questionnaire to filmmakers with films in competition asking them a variety of questions about their projects. We also asked them which films inspired them. It's no surprise to see films by Albert Hitchcock, Antonioni Fellini, Werner Herzog, David Lynch and Roman Polanski make the list, but there were some surprising picks, including "The Craft," the 1996 teen horror film starring Neve Campbell, as well as more obscure films such as Jon Alpert's "Life of Crime 2," which aired on HBO back in 1998.
