Does filtering by event exclude visitor's session or just the event?

Wondering if I put a custom filter on my property view to filter by event, does that filter then filter off that visitor's entire session or just the event? I would like it to exclude the entire session.

Filter will only exclude events.
If you want to exclude sessions based on event you can create a segment.
