The winning screenwriters of the New Voices of Twilight Saga project are...
Lionsgate, Women In Film, Facebook, Volvo, and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer joined forces to present The Storytellers: New Voices of Twilight Saga project, in which female writers and directors were allowed to submit original stories in the form of short films, so long as the films were set in the Twilight universe and based on those characters.
After 1,200 submissions, EW can exclusively reveal the six winners of the screenplay portion of the competition.
“The Groundskeeper” by Sarah Turi Boshear follows Alice and the events that led to her becoming a vampire.
“Sunrise” by Alanna Smith tells Benjamin’s story.
“Turncoats” by Lindsey Hancock Williamson is about Garrett and Carlisle during the Revolutionary War.
“The Mary Alice Brandon File” by Kailey and Sam Spear focuses on Alice’s human life before she became a vampire.
“Consumed” by Cullyn Doerfler & Megan L. Reese tells Jane and Alec’s story.
“We’ve Met Before” by Thea Green is all about Alice and Jasper’s first meeting.
The full screenplays will be posted on Tongal’s contest page later today, while the competition continues to build with winners of the directing and short film portion yet to be announced. And at the end of it all, the grand prize winner will receive the opportunity to shadow a director on one of Lionsgate’s television shows, along with a new, Cullen-approved 2015 Volve XC90. Additionally, Volvo just announced “The Storytellers: New Voices of the Twilights Series Drive to Dream Sweepstakes,” through which those who vote in the contest can enter to win a Volvo XC60 Crossover.
