At the Cannes premiere, Ken Loach and his team were greeted with a rapturous 15-minute standing ovation after the official screening of I, Daniel Blake (2016).

This is Ken Loach's second Palme d'Or; he won his first one in 2006 with The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006).

Director Ken Loach is the oldest Palme d'Or winner ever. When he won on 22nd May 2016 for I, Daniel Blake (2016), he was 79 years old.

The film was shot in chronological order. Lead actress Hayley Squires was not given the entire script to read before filming. She only was given fragments as accompanying scenes were shot.

Director Ken Loach was invited for the 13th time into the 'Official Competition' of the Cannes International Film Festival. This is probably a record.

I, Daniel Blake was selected for the 21st edition of International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK).
