Kristen Stewart Kicks Off “Storytellers – New Voices Of Twilight Saga” (VIDEO)
Kristen Stewart helps to launch the “Storytellers — New Voices of The Twilight Saga” contest in a new video promoting the highly anticipated project. Female writers and directors are encouraged to use their “courageous and creative perspectives” to tackle the “visually unexplored stories of the Twilight world.” It should be cool.
“I am where I am because of all the strong women who came before me to help pave the way,” says Stewart in a new video that also features “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer, Octavia Spencer and Frozen director Jennifer Lee. Stewart adds, “Now is the time for the next generation of female filmmakers to take a stand and tell their stories.”
Contestants are advised to be “inventive” with their creations, even if it means breaking from the ways in which the theatrically released films interpreted the books. The people and partners behind the “Storytellers” endeavor hope to see a “variety of styles, genres and interpretations.”
Meyer, Stewart, Spencer and Lee will be joined by Julie Bowen, Kate Winslet and others on a star-studded panel to choose and mentor the most promising filmmakers. The winning submissions will be released on Facebook. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think.
