Both Yvonne Rainer’s Journey from Berlin/1971 and Gunvor Nelson’s Red
Shift include readings from diaries.

Sasaki Yusuki’s Letter, might qualify; it’s dialogic in structure, a
series of text messages sent back and forth on the 17-year old
filmmaker's cell phone. There's also Tarnation, of course.

For theoretical texts I highly recommend the volume on Jonas Mekas,
“To Free the Cinema,” edited by David James.
