Join us in Athens for The Athletic Coup Film Festival: Featuring Untold Stories Of Athletes And Niche Sports From Around The World.

The Athletic Coup was born out of a desire to uncover the hidden gems of the athletic world, including motivational amateur athlete stories and niche sports.

Through the art of film, the film festival brings to life the passion, dedication and triumphs of athletes from all walks of life, inspiring audiences to dream big and strive for greatness.

Travel Massive members are warmly invited to attend the screening which will be held at the Technopolis City of Athens | Gasholder 1 Auditorium «Miltiadis Evert» on Tuesday, 21 May at 19:00. Tickets are only 10€.

We will show five award-winning films that have never been screened in Greece before. From the selection:


Sebastien Bellin, a former professional basketball player, is on his way to New York, departing from Brussels Airport. As he was receiving his boarding pass, a bomb exploded in the Brussels airport. As he runs toward security, a second bomb explodes a few feet away. Bellin nearly died in a terrorist attack on March 22, 2016.

With some luck and help, he survives and keeps his legs after 13 surgeries. We see him thanking the Greek doctor who saved him. Six years later, Bellin completes the Ironman Triathlon of Hawaii as a disabled athlete.
