Want to watch: Claude Shannon Project (Documentary)

Bookmarked Claude Shannon Project (IMDb)
Directed by Mark Levinson. With Judith Ivey, Michael Rose, Kaliswa Brewster, Geoff Schuppert. A film about Claude Shannon, the "Father of Information Theory"
I know this shot over a year ago now. I’m wondering what’s happened to their post production schedule? Distribution issues perhaps?

    19 June was the World Premiere of the finished product. The Bit Player was screened to a full house on the big screen at the IEEE Information Theory Society’s meeting in Vail, CO, US. The film was met with enthusiastic acclaim. Following the screening attendees were treated to a Q&A with the film’s director and star.
    Among the techniques used to tell Shannon’s story was the testimony of current luminaries in the fields he inspired. All spoke of his importance and the need for his impact to be recognized.

    Based on this article the Claude Shannon movie The Bit Player has already had its premiere. I updated the IMDb entry, but I still have to wonder if it is ever going to get any distribution so that the rest of us might ever see it?
