A Brief History
NOFLASH was created to fill the need for a social yet professional platform focused on emerging time-based artists and filmmakers, ranging from undergraduate students to working artists, while also aiming to transcend geographic and socioeconomic constraints. NOFLASH was founded in 2016 by Jordan Rathus, Charles de Agustin and Ruby Ryan; NOFLASH 2019 is organized and curated by Charles de Agustin. Contact info and more can be found at
