The Miami 4 Social Change Youth Film Festival is billed as a “media empowerment” platform to elevate the voices of today's youth through film. It is designed to inspire young people to create change using the art of cinema and filmmaking.
Burtin, of South Euclid, expects to earn his Associate of Arts degrees from Tri-C in December.
The 19-year-old is the owner and CEO of Boyz II Business Entertainment. Burtin launched the independent record label in October to distribute his music and encourage the work of other artists.
