If I making non commercial short film(just for festivals) can I use the music without permission but all credits will be on the film?
If I need permission how can I get it?

Yes you can. However it would be polite too ask or mention it to the creator of the music.
Something I allways ask for is a link or a copy of the film just too get a collection

You already have permission to use all of the music at ccmixter per the terms of the license, without needing additional permission or licensing, except as noted below. The terms of each license is on the song page (there is place to click for more information on the license on the right side). To comply with the license terms, you must credit the artist, including a link to the song page (wherever possible). If a song is licensed with a cc-by-nc license, you can only use it in a non-commercial setting. However, you may be able to use it in a commercial venture if you get written permission from the producer of the song and all artists who contributed source material to the track as that kind of use is outside the cc-by-nc license.
