Back in October, TWILIGHT author Stephenie Meyer announced the launch of a short film campaign by the name of THE STORYTELLERS: NEW VOICES OF THE TWILIGHT SAGA which will give creative female filmmakers an opportunity to be showcased worldwide.
Now, fan voting for Phase 1 is open and the all-female panel of award-winning advisers has been announced!
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.
With the announcement came a video in support of the contest featuring Stephenie Meyer, Kristen Stewart, and more!
