Cinemavault Releasing International has acquired international rights to the drama Canvas starring Marcia Gay Harden, Joe Pantoliano, and newcomer Devon Gearhart.

The Los Angeles-based company will screen the film for buyers at next month's European Film Market in Berlin.

Joseph Greco wrote and directed the story of a family's struggle to cope with schizophrenia, based on his own childhood memories when he watched his mother battling this disease.

Canvas shot in Florida and won the 2006 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival's audience award for best feature film and the jury award for best dramatic performance in an American indie.

Sharon Lane, Adam Hammel, Lucy Hammel, Pantoliano and Bill Erfurth produced.
