FILTER is a seasonal American music and off-beat entertainment magazine. It features commentary and photos of up-and-coming musicians and filmmakers ranging from actors to writer-directors. Each season's (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Holiday) issue highlights a reasonably well-known cover artist while also taking a look at smaller artists under the heading "Getting to Know". The magazine also includes reviews of forthcoming albums and DVDs.
The magazine used to contain a "PSSST!" compilation with each issue. Its tagline is "Good music will prevail".
The publication helps to bring indie music to the forefront through its reporting while also highlighting established artists in long-form interviews.
FILTER is published by Alan Miller and Alan Sartirana. Its editor-in-chief is Pat McGuire, its associate editor is Breanna Murphy and its layout designer is Melissa Simonian.
FILTER also has a marketing arm which operates independently of the print publication.
