"Benevolence" earned itself a place in Hollywood after it was selected and nominated for 'Most Inspirational Feature Film' at the International Christian Film Festival in Orlando, in April 2016.

Speaking to the press after the screening, Doris Ariole said, “I make Christian movies because God called me to do so. Christian movies weren't my initial plan, I just wanted to make 'morally correct movies'.

But over time in my relationship with God I realised how He wanted me to use the creative talent He blessed me with. My film production company is called Hadassah Studios, that's the Jewish name of Queen Esther of the Bible,” she said.

It was also gathered that the movie will be screened for two consecutive weekends starting August 12, 2016 in Orlando before making its entry into the cinema.
