At the Museum of Modern Art’s 2018 film benefit night ceremony Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Emily Mortimer and more stars honored Martin Scorsese for his contributions to the art of film. When DiCaprio took the stage, he described how, after his father took him to see Goodfellas at the age of 15, “I made it a goal, I made it a relentless ambition” to work with its director.”I was lucky enough to fulfill that dream in 2001 by working alongside Marty on Gangs of New York,” said DiCaprio, who has since collaborated with Scorsese on four other films and will soon start production on another, Killers of the Flower Moon. Through The Film Foundation, which he created in 1990, Scorsese has funded 111 MoMA film preservation efforts. He has also donated selections from his vast collection of film memorabilia to four MoMA exhibitions, including this past February’s Martin Scorsese Presents Republic Rediscovered: New Restorations from Paramount Pictures.
