According to Wikipedia "The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF, stylized as tiff.) is a publicly attended film festival held each September. Founded in 1976, TIFF is now one of the most prestigious events of its kind in the world. In 1998, Variety magazine acknowledged that TIFF "is second only to Cannes in terms of high-profile pics, stars and market activity." In 2007, Time noted that TIFF had "grown from its place as the most influential fall film festival to the most influential film festival, period. This is partially the result of TIFF's ability and reputation for generating Oscar buzz".

The poster was designed by Pater Sato (1945–1994) (born Yoshinori Sato) a Japanese artist who created airbrush art for magazines. Raised in Tokyo in the early sixties he began illustration at Studio Graphis in Tokyo. In the mid-sixties he attended Setsu Mode Seminar, school of fashion illustration. After graduation in 1967, Pater Sato began working at Tokyo Ad Designers Studio. Three years later he joined Avant-Garde Acting Group, "Tokyo Kid Brothers," in Tokyo, and worked as an art director and illustrator, then toured with them in New York and designed sets for their off-Broadway musical plays at Cafe La Mama.
