Gemma's fellow judges include: Italian director Giancarlo De Cataldo, French actress Chiara Mastroianni, US artist Laurie Anderson, Venezuelan director Lorenzo Vigas; German actress Nina Hoss, director and president of the jury Sam Mendes, Chinese actress Zhao Wei and US director Joshua Oppenheimer.
Fortunately, Gemma will know not to be too critical of any talent. In a recent interview, Gemma admitted she didn't read reviews after her performance in West End show Made In Dagenham last year.
She told the Radio Times: 'I was really damaged by reviews last year when I did Made in Dagenham. It was a huge project for me and we got really good ones and REALLY bad ones.

'They picked on me, which is fine, but it’s hard when you’ve got to go on stage again that night, and the next night, for four months after that… so when I started in Nell Gwynn, I decided not to read any.'
Earlier this year, Gemma received rave reviews for her three-month run in Nell Gwynn at the Apollo Theatre in London's West End.
She was even nominated for an Olivier Award, but lost out to Denise Gough.
