RMIT screenwriting students and alumni are showcasing their work on public stages at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Students from the Advanced Diploma of Screenwriting have had their work selected and produced for performance in various locations around Melbourne.
Sam Floyd, RMIT Screenwriting student and founder of theatre company Freshly Ground, said he was thrilled to be part of the festival program for a second year in a row.
"I'd accumulated a stack of short play scripts over a few years of writing for various festivals, so felt this Fringe Festival was a great chance to showcase them," he said.
Mr Floyd's show My Brain Made Me Do It is a set of short plays about everyday insanity, accountability and self-discovery.
"Being in a hub venue, where there are eleven shows playing every night, gives us a great opportunity to network and promote," he said.
My Brain Made Me Do It is showing at the Tuxedo Cat until Sunday, 28 September.
Rhys Auteri, an RMIT Screenwriting student with a background in performing arts, said the program had augmented his fluency as a writer for both screen and theatre.
"The RMIT program focuses on ideas, structure, themes, and technicality of the craft, which has really complemented my previous arts and theatre training," he said.
Mr Auteri performs the live score for Bucket's List, a story about a bucket salesman who moonlights as a wedding DJ, showing at the North Melbourne Town Hall until Saturday, 4 October.
RMIT Screenwriting alumnus Kathryn Goldie also has her work presented at the festival this year, in a short drama by Ladymullet Productions, entitled Love Triangle, 1919.
Ms Goldie's show, running until Sunday, 28 September at the Brunswick Mechanics Institute, explores the types of lives and loves permissible in Australia circa 1919.
The Melbourne Fringe is a not-for-profit organisation that provides emerging and established artists with the tools to develop, present, and promote their work in a collaborative environment.
The festival runs until Sunday, 5 October.
