Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will receive the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Cinema Vanguard Award on Feb. 6 at the Arlington Theatre.

The two will be celebrated for their collaboration on five films, but the announcement from the festival singled out “The Wolf of Wall Street,” saying the Paramount release “has taken their fearless and uncompromising work together to an even deeper level.”

In the statement, Sbiff executive director Roger Durling said, “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.”

The fest runs Jan. 30-Feb. 9, screening more than 200 films. It has become a key stop on the awards circuit, due to timing.

DiCaprio and Scorsese previously collaborated on “Gangs of New York,” “The Aviator,” “The Departed” and “Shutter Island.”
