Critical reception

While the film was not widely distributed, it received accolades from several critics. The Minnesota Daily's Tony Libera called it "an engaging, at times terrifying, record" of the events surrounding the RNC. Peter S. Scholtes of City Pages said, "Whenever it opens, you must see Unconvention," adding that "the movie feels raw, unprocessed, and complex—with an eye toward every possible irony."
