The Seattle International Film Festival announces the official lineup for the 2013 Women in Cinema festival, running January 23-27. Produced by SIFF, Women in Cinema is returning after a ten year hiatus. SIFF Artistic Director Carl Spence states, "We are excited to revive SIFF's popular festival devoted to women directors. There is an abundance of extraordinary films directed by women this year and we look forward to showcasing a lively selection of the best new films from around the world."

Women in Cinema will showcase ten feature films and a program of shorts from female directors around the world. Margarethe von Trotta's "Hannah Arendt" will open the fest, about the philosopher and her controversial coverage of the 1961 trial of Nazi Adolph Eichmann and her "banality of evil" statement. "Ginger & Rosa," from director Sally Potter and starring Elle Fanning, will close the festival (check out the new trailer below). The film follows friends as they come of age in 1960s Britain.

The festival will also screen "The Dandelions" (dir. Carine Tardieu, France), "Lore" (dir. Cate Shortland, Australia/Germany/UK), "Midnight's Children" (dir. Deepa Mehta, Canada/UK), "Seattle Boy" (dir. Catriona McKenzie, Australia), "Vanishing Waves" (dir. Kristina Buozyte, Lithuania/France/Belgium), and "The World Before Her" (dir. Nisha Pahuja, Canada).
