Rush Process celebrates DIY, handcrafted animation as a vehicle for self-expression. We screen highly personal animation made with physical media, spanning a wide variety of genres, including narrative, documentary, essay, and experimental.
We are the only full-scale animation festival in the state of Texas, and the only animation festival in the US explicitly dedicated to handcrafted animation, a materials-focused practice at the intersection of DIY, auteur-driven cinema and analog animation art.
We welcome submissions made using any non-digital technique, including stop motion, paper cut-out, multiplane, ink & paint on paper, charcoal, chalk, paint- and sand-on-glass, analog rotoscoping, and direct animation on celluloid.
A parallel goal of the festival is to provide our audiences with the opportunity to create animation themselves, via popup animation stations, workshops and collaborative, time-based production challenges.
Our 2018 festival is co-presented and hosted by Aurora Picture Show, a non-profit media arts center that presents artist-made, non-commercial film and video, currently celebrating 20 years of radical film programming in Houston, TX.
