RenCon produces new movie, set to premier at this year’s convention

This year’s con will be held in September at Hotel Interurban.

Renton City Comic Con — or RenCon for short — has been cooking up new content for its audience.

The con, in partnership with HollyShorts Film Festival and Seattle Film Summit, produced a original short film that’s set to premier at this year’s convention in September at the AMC theater in Westfield Mall.

“Jameson” features actor Brad Carter, who starred in “True Detective,” “Sons of Anarchy” and “Black Mass.”

“We believe we’re the first convention ever to move into creating and curating our own content. Our fans love the fact we’re creating content that they love the most,” said Emilio Morales, co-founder of Rencon, in a press release. “It’s a great model — we’re listening directly to the fans, hearing what they want first-hand, and then developing it with our partners.”

It was recently announced that this year’s convention will be held at Hotel Interurban in Tukwila. The lineup includes Larry Hama, Michelle Harrison, Arris Quinones, Randy Emberiln, Justin Hunt, Scott Pope, Steven K. Smith and Jackie Craft.
