Here is what the official Oscars page has to say about the event.

Tim Robbins stars as Andy Dufresne, a young banker falsely convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover, who faces unthinkable brutality as an inmate of Shawshank State Prison. Andy’s accounting skills and his friendship with a more experienced prisoner, Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding played by Morgan Freemanhelp keep him alive in the hostile setting.

However, an unforgivable betrayal leads him to plot an impossible escape. For his directing debut, Darabont assembled a top-notch supporting cast with a memorable performance by the great James Whitmore as a longtime convict. Darabont was also aided by Roger Deakins’ stark cinematography, Richard Francis-Bruce’s tense editing and Thomas Newman’s emotional score, which all earned Oscar nominations. Stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and writer-director Frank Darabont will appear in person to help celebrate this contemporary classic’s 20th anniversary.
