What brands are available for colour reversal film in 16mm?

Kodak Ektachrome. 100D

Some folks in Europe slit and re-perforate some Fuji stocks but I don't believe Fuji sells any themselves.

You may find your perforations aren't quite as you expect them to be if you take that approach ;)

I have half an idea in my head about how such an operation could use the space inside the perfs on 35mm strip to make a 16mm slit and 8mm slit, which would then be appropriately perforated.

The whole thing kind of relies upon them getting 100 ft lengths from the manufacturers though, which suggests some sort of special arrangement as (AFAIK) no Fujichrome stock is available in 35mm bulks.

The joy of conjecture, eh?

To be "practicable" you would need to get unperfed 35mm stock, then you perf it as 32/35 and slit it. Some of the print stocks were made as 32/35 to allow two release prints in 16mm to be stuck at the same time in the heyday of educational films.

16mm use designed from the start so you can only get one strip of 16 from Perforated 35. (and one of 8mm if you are careful) as Gerorge eastman was not wanting any 35mm Nitrate film ending up in the home.
