Minnesota-born filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen are among the artists who will be lauded with a tribute at the 40th annual Telluride Film Festival this weekend, Variety reports.

Sharing the honor with the Coens is their frequent collaborator T Bone Burnett, who is the music supervisor on the brothers' latest film "Inside Llewyn Davis."

Burnett has also worked with the Coens on "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "The Ladykillers."

Organizers of the Telluride, Colo., festival also announced that there will be tributes to filmmakers Robert Redford and Mohammad Rasoulof.

Telluride, which traditionally announces its film selections and honorees the day before the start of the festival, will feature "Inside Llewyn Davis" as one of the 37 films at the five-day long festival.

Running Thursday through Labor Day, Telluride is typically only four days long, but has been extended a day this year to celebrate the festival's 40th anniversary.

Deadline Hollywood reports that in addition to the festival, the Punch Brothers will stage a concert Wednesday night in Telluride, and will play among its selections songs Burnett featured in the Coens' films, including some from "Inside Llewyn Davis."
