In 'How to Meet a Mermaid', the sea becomes a haven for mankind, locked in its struggle with an 'indifferent universe'.

The question remains, however, whether they will find what they so anxiously seek underneath the surface of the waters.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
