Want me to talk with the director? He's in a Facebook group that I'm a part of.
My understanding was that it is just being self distributed by selling DVD/digital download. Only things that have a wide distribution through large networks like Amazon or Netflix are eligible. In other words, if it ends up on one of the big streaming services it would meet the distribution criteria for eligibility.

More broadly though, documentaries are not eligible automatically. This is sort or a grey area as it is a docudrama, but it would still have to be allowed as an exception. It is kind of hard to judge it just based on a trailer.
