DONOVAN’S ECHO

DIRECTOR/CO-WRITER

“With such an interesting mystery, great performances, and themes of hope and acceptance, DONOVAN’S ECHO is a great debut for Jim Cliffe.”

William Brownridge, TORONTO FILM SCENE.

After the success of his award-winning short film, TOMORROW’S MEMOIR, Jim strove to make his first feature. DONOVAN’S ECHO was Jim’s first feature-length script, co-written with his wife, Melodie Krieger. Out of 3,000 international screenplays, the script won the Bronze prize for Drama in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, and was also a quarter-­finalist in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Nicholl Fellowships. Starring Danny Glover and Bruce Greenwood, the film enjoyed a small theatrical release in 2012 after a festival run. It has since been available on Netflix, Showtime, iTunes and On Demand.
