We can’t wait for the epic franchise Twilight to come back into our lives!

The winners of a contest called The Storytellers: New Voices of Twilight Saga have been announced — which means the six new short films in the Twilight universe are officially revealed!

Here were the guidelines for entering into this contest just to add a little background:

“The goal is to create a 5-10 minute Short Film set in the Twilight universe, featuring a character from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide. Fans of Twilight will vote to select which characters they’d like to see in the Short Films and female writers will create Screenplay Outlines and complete Screenplays featuring those characters. Stephenie Meyer and Women In Film will then select and mentor 5 fresh, bold female filmmakers to bring the Screenplays to life.”

The submitted scripts were then picked by the series’ creator Stephenie Meyer as well as Lionsgate, Women In Film, Facebook and Volvo.

The next step in this project is to determine which new female directors will be filming these winning screenplays!

One interesting tidbit about all of this, as well, was which character proved the most interesting to write about for these winning writers.

That honor belonged to the character Alice Cullen who was portrayed by Ashley Greene in the films.

THREE of the screenplays featured that character! We wonder if Ashley will appear in these short films in the Twilight universe.

It would be INCREDZ if she did!
