Egyptian star Nelly Karim isn't just a brilliant actress, she's a true performer in every sense of the word. 

Jumping from one success to another, the actress is currently in Italy where she's taking part in the prestigious 73rd Venice International Film Festival.

But she isn't just an ordinary celebrity attendee; Nelly is sitting on the judging panel of the festival's "New Horizons" competition alongside some of international cinema's biggest names.

Nelly is the first Egyptian actress to sit on a judging panel at the Venice Film Festival.

The festival kicked off at Venice Lido on Wednesday 31 August and will run until 10 September 2016.
