These films were not only critically acclaimed but gave strong returns on investments as well.There were around 12 films with female-driven stories last year and it started with Kangana Ranaut’s power packed performance in Rangoon.

As Ford’s in-house futurist, it’s her job to keep her eye on the big picture–to examine trends, to think flexibly, and to imagine possibilities as much as decades away. Since being named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People earlier this year, Connelly has begun developing a “futuring” curriculum at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. And this week, she released Ford’s second annual trend book, tackling themes she projects will be relevant for the next two years–on topics like the “joy of missing out” and a reconsideration of nostalgia. advertisement advertisement Fast Company recently caught up with Connelly to learn more about her curious and enviable job.
