The Santa Barbara International Film Festival will honor director Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio with the Cinema Vanguard Award at the 29th edition of the festival, which runs from Jan. 30 through Feb. 9.

The award presentation and tribute will take place Feb. 6 at the Arlington Theatre.

The Oscar-winning director and the Oscar-nominated actor have collaborated on five films — "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed," "Shutter Island" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," which opened Christmas Day.

On the set: movies and TV

"Scorsese and DiCaprio's partnership has become a legendary cinematic pas de deux recalling other great collaborations like John Ford and John Wayne, Fellini and Mastroianni, John Huston and Bogart — and even Scorsese and De Niro," festival executive director Roger Durling said in a statement Thursday.

The Cinema Vanguard was created to recognize those "who have forged his/her own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film." Recipients include Amy Adams, Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, and Nicole Kidman.
