The Oscar buzz for "The Wolf of Wall Street" isn't flagging. Joining the slew of tributes and galas surrounding the hotly debated film, New York's Bow Tie Cinemas Ziegfeld Theater will burnish Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's awards season luster with a two-day, five-film retrospective running February 13-14.

NY Film Society at Lincoln Center's Kent Jones will moderate a conversation on 2/13 with DiCaprio, editor Thelma Schoonmaker and "Wolf" scribe Terence Winter prior to a screening of "The Wolf of Wall Street," up for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor and Adapted Screenplay this year.

Oscar ballyhoo for the film flourished last weekend at the Santa Barbara Film Fest, where DiCaprio and Scorsese accepted the fest's Cinema Vanguard Award, presented by "Wolf" costar and Oscar nominee Jonah Hill. Scorsese was also feted last Saturday at the Art Directors Guild Awards with the Cinematic Imagery Award, doled out by pal DiCaprio. Oscar voters were present for these events, so clip shows and Q&As never hurt.

"The Aviator" and "The Departed," both starring DiCaprio, will also screen on 2/13 at the iconic Ziegfeld. Scorsese directed DiCaprio to Oscar nominations for "Aviator" and "Wolf," and the five-time nominee has yet to win. On Friday/14, "Shutter Island" and "Gangs of New York" will screen. All films will be shown in DCIP Digital format. Visit www.bowtiecinemas.com for tickets and showtimes.
