Due to a possible disruption of postal services, the mail out option for online ticket orders has been suspended. Any mail delivered prior to this disruption that is caught up in the postal system will be secured and held until operations resume.

In the meantime, we encourage you to consider the pickup option when purchasing GlobalFest tickets until further notice. GlobalFest tickets can also be purchased at Calgary Co-op Customer Service Offices, Marlborough Mall, and London Drugs locations in Central and Southern Alberta.

GlobalFest would like to thank you for your patience during this time.

    This year’s annual GlobalFest Human Rights Forum presented by TD Breakfast will feature Mohamed Fahmy speaking on “Media in the Age of Terror: How the War on Terrorism Became a War on Journalism”. Fahmy will be discussing his story and advocacy for world press freedom on Wednesday, August 17th from 7:30AM-9:30AM at Chinatown’s Civic on 3rd (130 3 Ave SE).
    The formerly imprisoned Mohamed Fahmy is an award winning Egyptian-Canadian journalist and author. Fahmy has spent most of his career covering some of the most definitive global events that have shaped our world today. Fahmy’s most recent post as the Egypt Bureau Chief of Al Jazeera International captured world attention when he was arrested in December 2013. Fahmy was incarcerated for 400 days – including one month in solitary – alongside ISIS terrorists and Jihadists in Egypt’s various maximum security prisons. Charged with conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood and fabricating news to the fundamentalist group’s agenda, Egypt and its government were faced with international outcry from the United Nations, the European Union, and U.S. President Barack Obama. In September of 2015, Fahmy was pardoned by the Egyptian government and returned home to Canada in October 2015. Now on his path of reflection on this life-changing experience, Fahmy is joining us at GlobalFest’s annual Human Rights Forum Breakfast. Additionally, Fahmy will be participating in a free-to-attend panel discussion on local, national, and international freedom of press from 4:00pm – 6:00pm at the John Dutton Theatre (616 Macleod Trail SE) later on in the afternoon of August 17th.
