I want to shoot a project that needs to remain on 16mm for projection at the end do I have to shoot regular 16mm Or can I shoot on S16mm. The goal is to keep it on 16mm for projection at film festivals.

What kind of options do I have? Thanks!

If you shoot super 16, then your print cannot carry an optical soundtrack, and it is most unlikely that any festival will be able to project the full width of the image.

Standard 16 would get around both those limitations.

The other alternative would be to shoot super 16 and release in a video/digital format. Many festivals accept that now, possibly more than would accept 16mm prints. You'd need to check with the festivals.

But if you are set on projecting 16mm, then it will be standard 16. Be prepared for sound quality that hasn't really kept up with the improvements in other formats.
