Xenia Leblanc brings her project to “Gritty & Pretty” to the first virtual Dances with Films festival On September 5 with a second screening on September 6.

A female-driven comedy centered around boxing gym owner Kira Waikovsky (Xenia Leblanc) and Lauren Barton (Kelly Russo), Gritty & Pretty tackles female empowerment and friendships with a punch.

LeBlanc wrote, directed and stars in the five-episode series, whose pilot episode will premiere at the festival. A Q&A with the filmmakers will follow. 
"I wanted to create a show that highlights female friendships and empowers up-and-coming female filmmakers to take charge and create the content they want to see on their screens. The sarcastic nature of my Russian upbringing has taught me to find humor in everything and that's why I gravitate towards comedy. Today, more than ever, actors must learn how to amplify their own unique voice and adapt all the tools available to tell their story. I hope that Gritty & Pretty inspires people to pursue their dreams while embracing their authentic selves," said Leblanc.
“Gritty & Pretty” stars Xenia Leblanc, Kelly Russo, Theresa Philomena, and Darryl Wesley.

The series is produced by Xenia Leblanc, Kelly Russo, and Nicholas Acosta.


Dances with Films Screening Schedule:
September 5 at 3:15 p.m. PT
September 6 at 3 p.m. PT
