Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi


Thank you to everyone who has supported Season 5 of Bare Feet so far – we couldn’t have gotten this far without you!

We actually decided to split the original Season 5 into 2 seasons (due to shortage in fundraising).  Season 5 (6 episodes) released on PBS in August 2022 with such a beautiful response – THANK YOU for helping make that happen!

We are now in our final stages of fundraising for the remaining 6 episodes that will become Season 6, scheduled to premiere on PBS later this year.  This last round of funding will cover post production, editing, distribution fees, marketing, press, and promotion. With final funding under way, as long as we reach our goal by summer of 2023, we are still scheduled for a summer/fall release of Season 6 on PBS nationwide – thank you again for all of your support!
