Women’s Filmmakers Initiative Provides Clear Picture of Hollywood Gender Disparity

7 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Preparing to speak at the Women in Film’s annual fundraiser and awards gala 2½ years ago, Wif president Cathy Schulman realized she was tired of having to beat the same drum yet again.

“If I stood up one more time and quoted flat-lined statistics about growth for women … not only was I going to be grossly disappointed in myself and the organization, but I also was going to be depressed and embarrassed,” Schulman, above with ‘Frozen” co-helmer Jennifer Lee, says. “The question became, how are we really going to start effectuate change and how can Women in Film be the leader?”

The result was the Women’s Filmmakers Initiative, which in collaboration with the Sundance Institute has developed annual research reports (2012 and 2013) to provide a clear picture of the gender disparity in film and television content creators. A key take-away from the study was that women face a barrier to »

The Twilight Saga Set To Return In A Series Of Female-Directed Short Films

1 October 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Are you surprised? No, of course not! The Twilight Saga, that trend-setting Ya trilogy adaptation that brought in a colossal $3.5 million worldwide, is not over yet. The most astonishing part of today’s news is that Lionsgate waited nearly two years since the last instalment’s release to announce a series reboot.

Before you get all uppity, retire that tirade you’ve been saving for the next Twilight fan you are cornered by at a cosplay event. You know, the one you’ve been working on about the franchise’s damning effects on young women and how it sets back feminism about a hundred years. Yes. Put a leash on that rhetoric, because today’s press release from the studio is actually a very refreshing read.

The new five-part film series, entitled The Storytellers – New Creative Voices Of The Twilight Saga, will be a co-operative effort between Lionsgate and Women In Film. »

The 'Twilight' Saga Will Continue With New Short Films, Kristen Stewart And More Will Oversee

1 October 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I even planned out where it would go for a couple more books," "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer teased a couple of years ago about the further adventures of Edward, Bella and the rest. "So I know exactly what would happen, I mean there are a lot of characters I think would have a voice in those other stories. I don’t know, maybe I’ll write it out someday for myself.” While Twihards will have to wait for more full-length movies, Meyer is passing the baton to aspiring filmmakers to put their spin on the franchise. Lionsgate announced “The Storytellers – New Creative Voices of The Twilight Saga,” a "multiphase contest" (read: complicated) that will eventually see five female filmmakers direct shorts based on characters from "Twilight." A star-studded panel, including Meyer, Kristen Stewart, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Lee, Catherine Hardwicke, Julie Bowen and Cathy Schulman, will select and help mentor the budding. »

Gird your loins, and get out your sparkles 'cause there's more "Twilight" coming our way - via Facebook!

If you're an aspiring female filmmaker with a taste for "Twilight," listen up. "The Storytellers - New Creative Voices of The 'Twilight' Saga" is an upcoming competition cooked up by "Twilight" distributor Lionsgate and author Stephenie Meyer that will award five female filmmakers the funds to make short films based on "Twilight" characters. Plus, the big winner will receive cold, hard cash and what's being nebulously referred to as "career opportunities." The organization Women in Film is also a partner in this venture, which is designed to boost the visibility of female filmmakers in Hollywood.

It's also a clever way to rejuvenate the "Twilight" franchise in a whole new way using social media. Whether or not this will lead to more "Twilight" flicks in the future is a mystery, but Lionsgate's Michael Burns teased, »

Lionsgate making more Twilight movies (sort of)

30 September 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A series of Twilight short movies are on the way. Will this lead to a new full movie?

Even though the cinematic Twilight series of films is done, there have been minor rumblings from time to time of another movie or two. Not for a while, though.

However, we now learn that Lionsgate is coming together with Facebook, the Women In Film organisation and Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, with the idea of making new short Twilight films, directed by women. It's part of what's being called The Storytellers campaign, and will result in at least five shorts, based on characters within the Twilight world.

The judging panel will include Stephanie Meyer, Kate Winslet, Frozen co-director Jennifer Lee and original Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. The films themselves will debut on Facebook. However, inevitably it opens up suggestions that a new Twilight movie or two may be at the end of the process. »

Twilight Saga will live on with five short films produced by Lions Gate in partnership with Facebook, each of which will be created by a female director.

Twilight Saga Short Films On Facebook

Each short film will be based on the characters originated in Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series and embodied onscreen in The Twilight Saga that launched the careers of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. None of the films will star members of the original cast, and it is unclear who will pen the scripts or which stories will be explored.

The short films will be released exclusively on Facebook, creating a partnership that Lions Gate hopes to continue in the future. “We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of Twilight to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans,” said Lions Gate Vice Chariman Michael Burns.
