With the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) just around the corner, Canada is buzzing with excitement for this year’s latest and greatest releases in film. Since 1976, TIFF has been one of the most celebrated film festivals in the world, showcasing both international and Canadian talent. With TIFF 2016 drawing in an exciting lineup of celebrities including Ryan Gosling, Scarlett Johansson, and Anne Hathaway, this year’s festivities are sure to impress.

One aspect that has remained constant to the success of marketing within the media and film industries is great advertising. Movie posters are a timeless way to build excitement and anticipation for upcoming films and provide a teaser for the plot and mood of a given piece.

A poster must be able to draw in an audience and create curiosity about the film, hinting at the characters and theme. The images, composition, and typography must be carefully thought out and strike just the right balance to spark interest.
