Last year, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, Lionsgate and Women In Film launched a competition for young women filmmakers. Its winners shot seven short films that complement the history of the famous franchise - and all of them were finally posted on the official Twilight Facebook page. All the short films tell the backstories of the minor characters of the books - for example, one of them explains how Carlisle and Garrett became friends, another is devoted to the childhood of Jane and her twin brother Alec, the third tells about Esme's past, and two more tell about Alice's past and her stay in insane asylum. Actors from the original parts of the franchise did not participate in the filming of new mini-films. You can watch all the videos below.
The creators of the project have opened the vote for the best short film; the winner will receive $ 100,000. A group of famous women will take part in the selection of the winner, including Stephenie Meyer herself, as well as actresses Kristen Stewart, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and Julie Bowen and screenwriter and co-director of "Frozen" Jennifer Lee.
