Imagine Entertainment, Adobe, and The Film Zone have announced a new short film competition called From Minutes to Movies ShortFest.

The competition will provide cash prizes, mentorship, and opportunities for the winners to develop their short films into full-length feature films, documentaries, or TV shows.
