Like all film festivals, independent films typically go there to find a distributor. The festival wrapped 2 days ago, so they'll be shopping it around, typically, looking for someone (like the Weinstein Company, or someone like that), to release it. If it gets a theatrical release, it'll be several months from now. I guess if nobody buys it, they could take it to another festival to try again, or directly release it on DVD. But, given the time and expense it takes to make a film, even an independent documentary like this, they'll likely try to get it in theatres to recoup their costs.
