Sixteen Films is the film production company formed by director Ken Loach and producer Rebecca O'Brien with writer Paul Laverty as the associate director.

The grant supported the development of four projects. To date, details of two of these projects have been announced:

  • I, Daniel Blake

The story centres on Daniel Blake, a joiner in the North East of England who needs help from the State for the first time following an illness. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, where it won the Palme d'Or.

  • The Flickering Flame

An interactive documentary that explores fifty years of uncompromising films from Ken Loach through his personal archive. The project was selected for the Creative Europe-funded Pixel Market in 2014 and went on to win the Arte International Prize at the event.
