During IDFA 2006, Kossakovsky gave a Masterclass in which he explained his unique vision on documentary. Shortly before the 19th edition of IDFA, Kossakovsky formulated ten rules for documentary filmmakers who are just getting their start. In his Masterclass, while screening Tishe! in the background, he explained how he applies his rules to his own work.

Rule # 1: Don't film if you can live without filming...
Rule # 2: Don't film if you want to say something...
Rule # 3: Don't film if you already know your message before filming...
Rule # 4: Film when you hate and love at the same time...
Rule # 5: Don't use your brain during filming...
Rule # 6: Don't force people to repeat an action or words...
Rule # 7: Shots must provide the viewers with new impressions...
Rule # 8: Story is important, but perception is even more important...
Rule # 9: Try to remain human, especially whilst editing your films...
Rule # 10: Don't follow my rules. Find your own rules...
