So your best bet would indeed be to go for the next slower stock in 16mm, to match grain a little more closely. Remember that the look will also be affected by lens resolution and depth of field - so a slower stock with consequently a wider aperture in 16mm would be working that DoF back in the right direction.

I have just received a couple thousand feet of kodak 5218. I am shooting a low budget short film soon and was thinking about using that, as well as some 16mm stock to finish the project (16mm instead of 35mm because of budget). If I do this, would you recommend using 7218 to try and match although the grain will be noticeably different? Or could I shoot on a slower 16mm stock to match grain and try to match the looks between the two with lighting and development?
I believe the Spike Lee film "She Loves Me" was shot on a combination of S16 and 35mm. It should be at your local video store. There was a Kodak Magazine article about it a couple of years ago. It was shot by Mathew Libatique who I believe has shot a few features on S16 now. I thought it looked great, but I dont think they intercut during a scene between formats. I hope this helps...
