Kristen Stewart is all set to make her directorial debut with a short film about the power of women.

The Twilight star will team up with Refinery29 for their ShatterBox Anthology, to direct Water, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The project will have short films from 12 female directors, writers and animators that explore the dynamics of power.

The first project to result from the anthology is Chloe Sevigny's Kitty, which will premiere at Cannes.

Empire actress Gabourey Sidibe will direct A Tale of Four Women for the project.

Stewart, 26, has already spoken about her ambition to go behind the camera.
