For new Dunedin Fringe Festival director Josh Thomas, the silver screen is about to become the stage.

The Dunedin events manager said he was excited about his new role, after the appointment was announced last week.

''The Dunedin Fringe Festival has become a celebrated part of our cultural calendar. It provides an important platform for extraordinary art and artists and I'm thrilled to come on board,'' Mr Thomas said.

''I'm looking forward to engaging Dunedin's creative community and working with them to put together the best programme possible in 2015.''

He will also manage Pecha Kucha Dunedin and the Amped Music Project when he takes over the role on August 18.

Mr Thomas has a background in events management and is also the Dunedin manager of the New Zealand International Film Festival.
