I'm new to film and find the situation troubling. I'm hoping to shoot a film later this year on their 16 mm reversal film, should I be concerned about not acquiring this stock?

look at records they came back into popularity in recent times so film could disappear and then reappear but i highly doubt it.
Production houses believe the complete decline of film at around 2016
but who knows

It's surprising the people working for major newspapers who don't seem to understand this. Basically Kodak will just continue trading as normal and all its debts will be wiped out. It's slightly more complicated than that but that the gist OTOH it's not a good sign of the health of Kodak, but then we all knew that anyway.
There is also Fuji who are doing just fine don't forget!

The problem is with the labs, transfers, conforming, the price of doing a DI, and archiving your film. A lot of people on this site are worried about film stocks existing. They never talk about the film labs that are dying like crazy or the alternatives to getting a DI. Which if you shoot on film and serious about it, you will have to do.
These hidden elements with of shooting on film the cost the most. So do your research.
