Submitting a student film for a local festival. Unlicensed music used. How should I clear this?

I've produced a short movie for an introductory class at University and a friend recommended I submit it for a local film festival. However, I delved into my own collection of (legally-owned) CDs for its soundtrack.
The budget for this film was $0, and I have no intention of profitting from it in any way. Assuming it may be chosen (which is admittedly unlikely), what should I do to prevent the copyright police from knocking my door down?
I'm in Michigan, if it matters.
