The GLAAD Media Award nomination for 
Outstanding Documentary
i
s a great honor,”said Patrick Sammon, the film‟s
creator and one of its
executive producers.
Thisnomination, coupled with the enthusiastic response the film received during its recentpremiere, underscores for us the importance of 
 Alan Turing‟s
story and the need for it toreach audiences across the nation

He‟s
the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. He also cracked the German Naval Enigmacode during World War II, helping to turn the tide of war and save millions of lives.Instead of accolades, Turing faced terrible persecution from the British governmentbecause he was gay. Unfortunately, he committed suicide in 1954 at the age of only 41years old.Starting in February 2013, the distributors of CODEBREAKER are placing it beforeaudiences across the country using a unique, new model called
“theatrical
 
on demand”.
This grassroots model puts the decision-making power in the hands of moviegoers,guarant

is a truly
grassroots effort,” said AndrewFogelson, president of TODpix. “It‟s exciting for 
us to be
using this new „theatrical
on
demand‟ model for the national
release of CODEBREAKER.
It‟s a fitting tribute
to AlanTuring that the digital technology he was so instrumental in creating is what will be usedto make sure this
film reaches as many people as possible.”
