Which film stock should I use?

I'm a little new to using film, but I know I want to use 16mm color. I'm shooting in Seattle sometime during the spring, inside of a ravine, so there's going to be bright sunlight seeping in through the trees. I'll most likely be shooting on a Eclair NPR, but maybe an ACL II or a Bolex. I'm looking for something that will leave some interesting light/shadow contrast, but I'm also shooting this on a REALLY low budget. Any suggestions? I'm willing to do tests w/a couple, but I'd really like to narrow it down to 3 or 4. Thanks!

try 250D, youll want day light stock, and a slower film stock if theres lots of bright light. however if u want grain and more interesting shadows, go for a faster film, like 500, but ull have to be very careful not to over expose, on the plus side ull get lots of nice grain!

50d

50d

Should use kodak vision 2 50d
It has smaller grain. Its good especially if you will project your footage on a big screen.
