Closing night of the fest presents the 1929 silent Louise Brookes-starrer “Diary of a Lost Girl” with live music.

Festival sked also lists events including a talk with helmer Olivier Assayas and screenings of Assayas-selected pics “We Won’t Grow Old Together” and the director’s cut of “Zodiac.”

BAM Cinema Fest is set to run June 9-20.
