Une affiche is more something used for advertising as the kind you find in French streets and also to advertise films.
Un poster is something you use for decoration in your home.
Hope this helps!
Thank you. So then the same piece of paper could be une affiche on the streets, and un poster in a teenager's bedroom.

Yes indeed, I don't think the word 'poster' existed when I was young as it comes directly from English but all teenagers wanted to get their hands on 'affiches de cinéma' to decorate their bedrooms...
