Samsung Partners with THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON for First-Ever Film Festival

March 9, 2021

Samsung teams up with Jimmy Fallon to highlight the best films created by Galaxy users shot entirely on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Samsung Electronics America and THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON are teaming up for another inspiring partnership – the first-ever TONIGHT SHOW FILM FESTIVAL, where creators can tell their unique stories using the latest technology from Samsung.

Check out THE TONIGHT SHOW videos including one from last night, where viewers can learn more about the upcoming event!



Each night, during the week of March 8, the TONIGHT SHOW FILM FESTIVAL will showcase original content from rising creators who have a passion for filmmaking.

As part of the Film Festival, THE TONIGHT SHOW selected ten finalists from a national, open search who each received the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra to shoot their short films based on the theme of what “A Different Focus” means to them. Of the ten finalists, five will have their film revealed during the show’s Film Festival week.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra offers the ultimate smartphone experience. The bold new design features the camera housing seamlessly integrated into the device’s metal frame for a sleek feel.

Featuring Samsung’s most advanced camera system yet, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is built so anyone can capture professional-grade photos and videos, along with 8K video capabilities and new tools for content creation like Director’s Cut and Vlogger View, so you never miss a moment.

Samsung Electronics America and THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON have a strong lineage of unique partnerships, having previously teamed up to shoot an entire episode for the first time ever on the Galaxy S10+ smartphone, rewarded three The University of Texas at Austin student leaders with a Galaxy Holiday Bundle and paying the remainder of their college tuitions, and most recently surprised six heroic frontline healthcare Moms with a Galaxy Bundle and $25,000 as part of the Put Mom in the Picture #withGalaxy Mother’s Day campaign.

Tune into THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON nightly at 11:35 PM ET/PT from March 8-12, 2021 to watch the winning videos as part of Film Festival week.
