Twilight Storytellers: Twilight Short Films

It's time, it's time!!! The Twilight Stories Short Films are here!

In November, Lionsgate, Women in Film, Facebook, Volvo Cars and the author of the Twilight books, Stephenie Meyer partnered to present a truly unique opportunity: the chance for women writers and directors to create Short Films set in the Twilight universe.

After months of voting for our favorite character stories, screenplays and directors the Short Films have premiered on Facebook!!! I am truly blown away by the amazing talent and beautiful storytelling in each of the seven unique films. Watch them now and vote for your favorite!!!


CONSUMED is the emotional story of Jane's past. Like her brother Alec, Jane was always "special," but in their quaint hamlet, their specialness inspires scorn and has terrible consequences until a mysterious stranger comes along and takes an unusual interest in them. Directed by Maja Fernqvist. Screenplay by Megan Reese and Cullyn Doerfler.
