You can create an image frame for each tile. 

First create an image frame of the correct tile size and place your poster in it.
Then adjust the scale so that the upper left corner shows correctly in this tile.

Duplicate this image frame for every other tile and just the image offset to show the correct part.

If the original poster is a PDF or Postscript file make sure to select „Embed DF (experimental)“ in the Export-to-PDF settings.
