The seven final movies in the “The Storytellers — New Voices Of The Twilight Saga contest had their world premiere on Monday, and now you can watch all the short films right here. Check out the videos below!

As Gossip Cop reported, the arts competition was first announced last September. Aspiring female writer-directors were invited to conceptualize and then create their own movies based on the world created by author Stephenie Meyer and her The Twilight Saga: Official Illustrated Guide. Fans were welcomed to evaluate the initial written submissions, which totaled nearly 1,300. The applications were then narrowed down to 150 “director’s pitches,” before eight finalists (six filmmakers and a sister directing duo) were given funding to create their mini-movies.

Twilight star Kristen Stewart and Meyer celebrated the finalists last month at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, as Gossip Cop noted at the time. An official premiere debuting each film took place at Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood on Monday, where Meyers posed with all the remaining contenders (see photo above). Now, after months and months of waiting, fans can finally watch the movies themselves.

And, after viewing each film, Twihards vote at tongal.com for which is the best. The votes, along with input from Stewart, Meyer, and a star-studded panel, including Academy Award winner Kate Winslet, will determine the grand prize winner. An enthusiastic Octavia Spencer, another Oscar-winning panelist, tweeted Tuesday afternoon, “So unbelievably excited to be a juror for the #TwilightStories! Watch & vote for your favorite.”

The victor, to be announced in early August, will receive $100,000, a Volvo car, a trip to Los Angeles, and “various career opportunities.” Watch all seven movies below! Which Twilight Saga “Storytellers” film is getting your vote?
