    Good news for Twihards! It has been two years since the fifth and last installment of the Twilight Saga hit the big screen. The Twilight fans have been really upset as their favourite on-screen pair Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will not delight them anymore.

    Well, it is time to cheer up as Twihards will get to see the reunion of favorite vampires and werewolves but on a smaller screen.

    According to The New York Times, Lions Gate and author Stephenie Meyer announced today that they have plans to select five aspiring female directors to make short films based on Twilight characters. And guess what, Kristen Stewart will be a part of the panel for selecting the aspiring female directors. The panelists also include Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman and 'Frozen' director Jennifer Lee.
