How high of a resolution does a short need to be?
I ask this question as a complete novice to filmmaking: How high of a resolution does a digitally-shot short film need to be to play on a festival screen? How do I get that resolution out of a DSLR like the Canon T5i? I don't actually have one, but I'm saving up for one. At some point I'd like to submit to some film festivals, so I'd like to know if an ordinary DSLR like that one can get the right quality image. Also, does the editing software make any difference? At this point I edit my shorts with iMovie, and I want to know if I need to get Creative Cloud or something comparable before thinking about film festivals. Thanks.
