Winter is coming early to Italy this year. On July 19, the battle for the iron throne moves to the Giffoni Experience when “Game of Thrones”star Kit Harington will meet the international jury of youth at the 47th Giffoni Film Festival (14 – 22 July 2017) and receive the Giffoni Experience Award 2017.
Harington is well known to fans for his portrayal of Jon Snow, Eddard Stark’s “bastard son” and King of Winterfell, on HBO’s phenomenally successful series Game of Thrones. Since the show debuted in 2011, the cast of Game of Thrones has been nominated five times for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series” at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Harington was also individually nominated for his work on the series at the Primetime Emmy Awards and Critics’ Choice Television Awards in 2016. Game of Thrones will return on July 16 this year for its seventh season. See MORE on the Giffoni FF WEB Site!
