Movie icon Martin Scorsese will be feted by his frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio at the Los Angles County Museum of Art's upcoming Art+Film Gala. The Taxi Driver director will be celebrated for his Hollywood career on 2 November (13) at the third annual LACMA event, which is being chaired by DiCaprio. In a statement, the actor says, "I've been lucky enough to collaborate with Marty on Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, and most recently The Wolf of Wall Street. I am thrilled to have my dear friend join us at LACMA and to celebrate his astounding cinematic legacy and leadership in preserving film for future generations." British artist David Hockney will also be recognised at this year's (13) benefit. Previous honourees include late moviemaker Stanley Kubrick and Dirty Harry legend Clint Eastwood.
