Great!  The registration will be re-opened on April 21!  Thanks to info from 12K.  Hope to hear from all you film fans as it should be an interesting one with Tarantino as the president and Almadovar openning the festival.

CORRECTION TO THE ABOVE MESSAGE

All pre-registration for accredidation of professionals and the general public is now closed.  Although through personal contact pre-registration can still be done for professionals.  Both Producer's Network and Short Film registrations are closed as well and require complex professional accredidation process.  All screenings are included if reservations are made in advance.  You would only need to stand in line to get tickets if you were not pre-registered.

A little bit of perspective might help here:

Accreditation for the Cannes Film Festival is free, is (essentially) restricted to film industry/cinema professionals, and you had to apply for it by 9 April.

Details at http://www.festival-cannes.fr/pratique/accreditation.php?langue=6002

Registration for the trade show that runs at the same time, the Marché du Film, which includes access to the Festival, is also closed (but re-opens 21 April). Standard registration costs 840 euros for up to three people (which works out at 280 euros a head, not 420 euros) and 232 euros per additional person.

Other ways of getting access to the Festival via the "back door" of the Marché include the Producers' Network and the Short Film Corner. If you know the ropes, you can get in to the Cannes Film Festival, quite legitimately for 130 euros TTC, if you register in time (and you don't need to be three people).

Being accredited to the Festival does not "include all screenings". It includes access to the queue in which you must stand every morning if you want to get tickets for that day's screenings. You can also queue for sceenings in the "sidebar" events, but you are not guaranteed access to anything. If you're registered with the Marché, you can also see screenings of films that are being offered for sale in the Marché.

Thank you for all the calls.  Would like to clarify that more passes are possible if you should want them, but we must have a minimum of 2 registrated members first.

Preregistration has passed but I could still try to get late-registration or late-registration at the festival pavillion itself during the festival.  Please still get in touch with me if anyone is still interested, since the ealier we register, the sooner we can get screening tickets and invitations to social gatherings.
