"The Storytellers — New Voices of The Twilight Saga" was motivated by the desire to provide new female voices with an opportunity to be heard. Lionsgate, Tongal, Facebook, Volvo Cars, and Women in Film, along with Stephenie Meyer, are bringing you the chance to create Short Films set in the Twilight universe. Exploring the origin stories of characters from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, these Short Films will be set in the dynamic world of Twilight. Don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild. Our hope is to see a variety of styles, genres and interpretations.
The campaign will center on a multiphase contest culminating in the selection of up to six aspiring female filmmakers to direct short films based on characters from the Twilight universe. The films will be produced and directed with the mentorship of a blue chip panel of advisors, which will ultimately select the winning shorts that will premiere exclusively on the Facebook platform next year. The star-studded group of female panelists will include Stephenie Meyer, actress Kristen Stewart, Academy Award winners Kate Winslet and Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Lee, the award-winning writer and co-director of Disney’s global blockbuster Frozen, Emmy Award-winning actress Julie Bowen, and Women in Film President Cathy Schulman.
