The magazine narrowed down readers' submissions and asked Hudson, Kirsten Dunst and Rita Wilson to choose their favorites.
Hudson, 28, selected "Cutlass," a generational tale about family and tradition. The short film co-stars Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Virginia Madsen, Chevy Chase and Kristen Stewart.
Dunst, 25, cast Winona Ryder in "Welcome," a modern-day ghost story, and Wilson, 50, directed "The Trap," starring Jeanne Tripplehorn as a woman who finds happiness in trying something new.
The films will premiere Oct. 9 in Los Angeles. They will be screened Oct. 13 in the hometowns of the Glamour readers whose stories are told on-screen. The films will also be available on Glamour's Web site.
