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, "This is the just the beginning - a template, if you will... You can probably guess what might be coming next."

The panelists for this contest are a pretty great bunch of Hollywood bigwigs that includes "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart, author Stephenie Meyer, Oscar-winners Kate Winslet and Octavia Spencer, "Modern Family" co-star Julie Bowen, the OG "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke, "Frozen" co-director Jennifer Lee, and producer Cathy Schulman ("The Illusionist," "Crash," "Sidewalks of New York").

Which "Twilight" characters are ripe for the picking? Who would you want to see in a short film?
