Inside the gas tank, as part of the fuel pump assembly. Access is had through a cover you can get to by removing the back seat. Probably a video on YouTube.

You don't need to change it. My old 2008 with 230k miles is on its original filter. Just put a can of seafoam or equivalent in once in a while (My subaru specialist recommended doing this)

The Subaru 2008 Maintenance Schedule calls for the fuel filter to be replaced at 60,000 miles. That may be needed in certain areas of the world. In the USA I use Top Tier brands of gas from stations with filtered pumps. I add a bottle of Techron before every 2500-mile oil change, and with 70,000 miles now, I don't expect to ever replace the fuel filter.

Does that Seafoam dump into the gas tank? For some reason I thought it was sucked into the intake manifold through a small diameter vacuum hose.
