Red carpet treatment

Donovan’s Echo, a film directed by their son Jim in Vancouver, is getting the red-carpet treatment at film festivals across the country.

Big screen: Danny Glover stars in Donovan’s Echo

If Salmon Arm residents Bob and Linda Cliffe were proud before, they are busting their buttons now.

Donovan’s Echo, a film directed by their son Jim in Vancouver, is getting the red-carpet treatment at film festivals across the country.

The Calgary International Film Festival announced last Friday that Donovan’s Echo will open the festival’s 12th season with a special red carpet event Thursday, Sept. 22.

This is the fourth festival announcement for the dramatic mystery that will also play at the Vancouver International Film Festival, the Edmonton International Film Festival and the Cinefest Sudbury International Film Festival.

Danny Glover stars as Donovan Matheson, a man trapped in the past, plagued with regret over the loss of his wife and child in an accident he believes he could have prevented.

This is not the first time Cliffe’s work has been recognized. An experimental short film, Tomorrow’s Memoir, received Best Comic Oriented Film at Comic-Con 2005.

The screenplay, by Cliffe and Melodie Kreiger, was recognized by the Nicholl Fellowship and the Page International Screenwriting Awards.
